Description

Western Pennsylvania has a rich history of glass making. In Butler County during the 19th century there were glass factories at Parker, Knox, and elsewhere. Through their Glass Blowing Center, proprietors Tom and Elaine Doner keep the memory of this industrial past alive while maintaining the art of glass blowing. With a demonstration hall and a gift shop, the Center not only sells its blown-glass creations, but also educates the public about glass-making through presentations and “glass heritage” programs. Every year the Center hosts an “Art Glass Invitational” for glass flame-workers from around the country to come and share their knowledge with each other.
