Kersey's Glass Works Retiring

Regrettably, this marks a new path for Kersey's Glass Works as well. After starting nearly 40 years ago, we have decided to retire the studio. Kersey's Glassworks is no longer taking new commissions. We will be closing our doors June 11th.

May 27th, from 12PM til 7PM, our doors will be open to artists for viewing equipment, glass, moulds, racks, tables and supplies that we are letting go. We will list some of the items of note on this page (which will be updated over the next few days until the 27th): Pictures of Items.

Many thanks to our family and friends for your support through the years.
