Handcrafted Glass Christmas Ornaments

& Holiday Décor

A Wonderful Family Tradition

Here at Mountain Made, we are proud that since 2010 master scientific glass blower, Jason Probstein has been presenting live glassblowing demonstrations here at our art gallery.

And once again we are proud to announce that Jason will be blowing his unique Christmas ornaments here at Mountain Made from November 20 to December 21, 2020 … Or until his gas tanks run dry!

Jason will be demonstrating from 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM on these 3 days: Fridays, Saturdays & Mondays.

Asheville Glass blower, Jason Probstein is a trained scientific glass blower. He uses Corning Pyrex glass tubing that have been custom colored to create his wonderful artwork.

He uses a 3000 degree torch to heat and shape his glass art into strong and very durable pieces like his wonderful Christmas tree ornaments and goblets.

Jason received his degree in scientific glass blowing from the Salem Community College and has studied Venetian glass techniques at the Penland School of Crafts.

Jason as a nationally known glass blower has had his glass ornaments and other collectibles displayed in various art galleries and museum gift shops the throughout the Untied States (such as the Smithsonian).

His lightweight, yet durable Christmas ornaments are unique in both their shape, colors and patterns. It is this attention to detail that makes Jason’s work stand out among other glass artists.

COVID Concerns about Our Live Art Demos?

No Problem … We care about you! We have surrounded Jason with plexiglass shields and setup his glassblowing booth near an exterior window. We require all our in-store visitors to wear masks and wait 6 feet apart while shopping.
