Like an eccentric uncle, the holidays often sneak up on people and leave tinsel wherever they go. Deck the halls with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five handcrafted MJH glass ornaments at Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery (a $60 value).
Patrons enter Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery to discover the handmade work of more than 30 North American artists, including unique glass creations that focus on various styles, shapes and colours. Adorn freshly cut evergreens in a candy-cane design that reflects twinkling lights across its crimson hues, or place a bucket beneath a green-glass icicle in case it melts back into sand. An on-site studio beckons visitors over for daily demonstrations, in which local artisans use pipes to transform glowing glass into semi-transparent vases or summon flames by loudly gossiping about dragons in order to render glass beads. After selecting their five ornaments, customers can peruse the other artwork that occasionally sprouts from the store's exposed stone wall, including paintings, sculptures, and vases.
