Benicia Glass Studios
Nourot Glass Studio Smyers Glass Zellique Art Glass

Benicia Glass Studios offer visitors a unique opportunity to visit three glass studios at one location. Nourot Glass Studio, Smyers Glass and Zellique Art Glass are individually recognized for their distinctive style of handblown glass. They are located within walking distance of each other. Art glass created by artisans at these three studios is shipped to museums, galleries and fine stores throughout the United States and internationally. Benicia Glass Studio showrooms display artist prototypes, discontinued items, and seconds at greatly reduced prices. Nourot, Smyers, and Zellique showrooms display colorful goblets, vases, perfume bottles, lamps, paperweights, jewelry, platters, and sculptural pieces made in the glass studios.

While visiting these unique glass studios the public is invited to view glassblowers at work. Guests delight in watching the items that are sold in the showrooms take shape at the end of the artisans blowpipe. Glassblowing techniques used by the artists at the three studios are similar to those used centuries ago. Molten glass is drawn out of the 2000 degree furnaces onto the blowpipe. The master glassblower manipulates the hot molten glass into the desired shape as visitors watch.

Group tours are scheduled by special arrangements. Contact Zellique Art Glass for an appointment. Benicia Glass Studios hosts two Open House Sales each year on the first weekend in May and December.
