Ridabock Glass Studio & Gallery

You never know where an artist will find inspiration. For glass artisan Peter Ridabock, it comes from two places. The mysterious depths of the ocean are well suited to the liquid, layered nature of glass, leading Ridabock to create alternating strata of color and pattern that recall an ocean habitat. The artist also finds motivation in music, as the distinct elements that come together in a glass piece recall the cooperation required of players in an orchestra. With these inspirations as his guide and more than 30 years spent honing his craft, Ridabock flaunts a collection of colorful and abstract glass pieces in his personal gallery. The artist also shares his gift with others in daily glass-blowing demonstrations and a range of workshops that teach seasoned and beginner glass blowers to create one-of-a-kind pieces out of molten glass, which look a lot better than that time they left their eyeglasses in the center of the earth.

Wow! What a great experience. Pete walked us through the process, explaining each step before we started and then assisted us as we needed. We each made a tumbler, selecting the colors we wanted. Pete's are great artist, and patiently answered our questions. He also keeps safety in mind. The experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you Pete.
