Morean Glass Studio

The Demonstrations have REOPENED!

The Chihuly Collection is still open. We are complying with CDC recommendations. Please pre-purchase your tickets here to support our touchless environment.  

A visit to the Morean Glass Studio is an opportunity to get behind the scenes and observe resident glass artists creating unique works of art.

From gathering the molten glass from the furnace, to working it on the pontil pipe and glory hole, to its final cool down process in the annealing kiln, you will have a new appreciation for this art form that is centuries old. View the gaffer blowing glass, while the assistant narrates in detail the science behind glass, the artistic vision guiding the process and all of the steps involved as the work is being produced.

All of the pieces created are for sale in the Glass Studio Store conveniently located adjacent to the glass studio. Inside you will find a wide variety of art glass including: jewelry, bowls, vases, ornaments and more.

Ticket price is not required to visit the retail store. To purchase tickets or a Tampa Bay CityPASS, please visit Tickets. 

The Morean Glass Studio complies will all COVID-19 ordinances and requirements.  In the Spring of 2020, "Puff" the larger of the glass furnaces in the hot shop was shut down for the first time in 10 years. The molten glass had been maintained 365-days-per year thru holidays and hurricanes without interruption.  With Puff "asleep" much needed maintenance and repair work can be now be done.  We thank you for generously donating to the "Fire up Puff" effort at the Morean Arts Center.
