Composed of glass blowers, the knowledgeable staff at Cornerstone Glass Campus Store guides customers through an array of 98% locally crafted glass creations and imparts information about the artisans who forged them. The expansive selection adds new pieces to its stock daily, with everything from pairs of handcrafted wineglasses ($35+) and decorative vases ($30+) to a crystalline set of false teeth gracing the shop’s shelves. Visitors can also commission a repair or request a custom order. A windowed storefront and rooftop skylights flood the space with natural light, illuminating the radiant wares resting compliantly beneath 25-foot vaulted ceilings.
