Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of plates, vases, and sculptures or $100 toward studio classes at Stone and Glass, located on the grounds of Bernardo Winery.

Nestled in an Old World–style community of village artisans, Stone and Glass preserves and promotes the art of glassblowing with one-on-one studio classes and handcrafted sculptures. Master glassblower James Stone opens his studio to the public, granting a rare opportunity for customers to adopt one of his wavy-edged, violet- and citrine-swirled 12-inch plates ($100 for Groupon holders) or a pair of his mottled blue tumblers ($45 each) mere feet from the fire where they were willed into existence. Stone’s signature sea creatures ($45–$95) visually capture the fluidity of the glass medium into delicate, evocative works of ocean-inspired art. Those yearning to replace their taxidermied porcupine with a less hazardous paperweight can sign up for a one-on-one introduction-to-hot-glass lesson ($200, including all materials and equipment), where they spend an hour of their Saturday watching a live demo and then re-creating a glass piece of their very own. Call ahead to register for class.

Stone and Glass

Award-winning artisan and sculptor James Stone draws upon 27 years of craftsmanship and artistry to teach his students the ways of transmogrifying ordinary glass into masterworks. During hands-on demonstrations, James leads groups of up to six pupils in wielding 2,300-degree torches that turn brittle glass into malleable liquid ready to be shaped into art or slathered onto injured windows. Each day, the ovens also churn out tumblers and sculptures available for sale, and the studio routinely takes orders for custom projects and ornaments.

Customer Reviews

This was a great experience. If you ever wanted to know what it's like to blow glass or know more about this art form and skill I do recommend this class. You will blow your own tumbler with help from the instructor and owner. Be no means will you be an expert, but it is most interesting and fun. It will be very hot near the furnace so like it says dress cool and bring sunglasses and water.

Wonderful experience! They really took the time to explain the process, and then walked you through creating a simple glass. Hope to try it again sometime soon!
