Glass Holiday Feast
Stop in to see a festive holiday meal inspired by the warmth and kinship shared at tables throughout the holiday season. Created by the Hot Glass Demo team, the holiday feast features meal staples like turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Each year the feast grows as gaffers create and bring their favorite dishes to the table.
