Owned and operated by a husband and wife team, OCG is the first Native-American-owned and operated glassblowing business in the state. Their Newport facilities utilize the latest Italian glassblowing techniques and technology.

To help others discover this incredible art form, OCG offers personalized lessons. While there is a limited number of walk-in sessions available, advance reservations are highly recommended. The online system allows you to make your reservation 60 days beforehand.

During your one-on-one lesson, you will have the chance to create a unique item. There’s a wide range of items you can choose from, including a heart, paperweight, tidepool bowl, float, and wavy bowl. Sessions generally take 30 minutes per piece, and your work is available for pickup the following day.
