We are a locally owned and operated glass art center. Our mission is not only to wow you with the beauty of glass, but also to educate you with our many hands on workshops.

Witness the beauty of hand craft glass art in our studio gallery.
The gallery houses functional pieces (bowls, plates, vases, etc.) as well as high end sculptures, an extensive selection of jewelry, marbles, and small figurines.
Many items in the gallery can be seen being made on the tour.


Everyone has an artist side. Embrace it at the Mark Payton Glass Center.
