Glass Bubble Project is Clearly Amazing!

Trying to figure out something to do so Date Night is not so typical? Can’t decide what to get for the newly married couple? Sick of doing the same old arts and crafts with your kids? Go to Glass Bubble Project, which is Cleveland’s premier glassblowing studio and gallery, located in Ohio City near the world-famous West Side Market for over 20 years! They specialize in industrial design using repurposed and recycled materials, in a relaxed and welcoming space. If you haven’t had the pleasure of popping in, you should! Inside you will find a magical wonderland of beauty. And an interesting rescued rooster named Morty!

When my husband and I along with our two kids walked in, it was instantly the coolest/hottest joint I’ve ever stepped into. The staff was super nice and took time to explain to my little guys that this was an art that should be respected and enjoyed. They gently encouraged them to look, feel, and ask as many questions as possible. They have glass blowing going on around the clock. We were so impressed that we immediately signed up to come back in a couple weeks and take a class….all of us! Kids just have to be 5 and up!

Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours on your creation. My boys chose to make dragon eggs and the hubby and I decided on stemless wine glasses, of course. I cannot stress how much we enjoyed watching each other be creative!

First you pick the colors you would like to incorporate.


Then you follow your instructor who will give you some protective glasses and gloves and guide you from there. We had Mick, who was so wonderful with the kids. He asked me to what level I was comfortable with since after all we were dealing with thousands of degrees of heat here! He settled my “mom nerves” as he gently worked with the boys and made sure they were learning while having fun which was so important to us! Annnnnnnnnnd……..let the hot times roll! (literally)

After all 4 of us were finished there was nothing but smiles on our faces. Everyone seemed so proud to have done something so new, different, and creative. We will definitely be coming back with more friends and family and you should too! They have gift certificates available just in time for Graduation, Father’s Day, wedding season, or simply for that someone special. Go to Glass Bubble Project! You will clearly have a memorable time and something gorgeous to keep forever. Tell Morty, the rooster, we said Haaaaaaay!
