Salado Glassworks is a working glassblowing studio and gallery that specializes in custom hand blown glass. There’s always a seat by the fire for you to witness owner and artist Gail Allard shape art installations, sculptures, signature vessels or custom lighting options. The gallery also features custom hand blown glass drinkware, gifts and decor. Family friendly “Blow Your Own” events offer the chance experience and interact with the art of glassblowing firsthand.
“Here’s my idea. You’re my artist to make this happen. I trust you. Have fun” is just what any artist hopes to hear from a potential client. More and more of our clients are saying just that to us. Take a look HERE and HERE at how we’re making one of those client’s ideas come to life.
"As a family, we have been regular customers of Salado Glassworks for several years. We love the seasonal events they have. This year we had our office Christmas party there, and it was a hit. They are great folks as well as beautiful artists."
"What a great group of artists! Their work is absolutely fantastic, and it was so nice to be able to speak with them personally about different project ideas. The arena they have set up to watch the art in progress, interact directly with the artists as they are working, and even participate (we came on Dec 13 during the ornament blowing promotion) was just breathtaking, It's very rare to see art of such a high quality being made from a front row seat and be able to ask questions at the same time. We are really looking forward to our next visit!"
"Just went to the "Blow your own beer mug" event. Had an awesome time. Staff is wicked nice. Shout out to Aaron and his beard for helping me produce a work of art worthy of display at the Louvre. Definitely looking forward to future events. I strongly recommend you try one of these."
"What an amazing shop. Met Gail, the resident artisan, who was "down home friendly", super personable, and full of information about the town, it's history, and his craft. He just let us wander around the shop and absorb the beautiful works of art without that pesky sales person hovering!!! Top notched in my book as he supports the military troops and locals through sponsorship of events. I can't wait to place my custom order for beer mugs for Christmas presents!!! Definitely be back!!!"
