Blue Heron Glass

Blue Heron Glass first opened their doors on October 1, 1999, in a tiny little spot on Ashley River Road, affectionally referred to as “the cave.” Founder, Mike Hiester, is always making something new, exploring the explosion of colors and possibilities through glass.

“We believe that the process of working with glass in a craft setting should be accessible to anyone with the desire. When you start with something as beautiful as glass you will end up with an object of beauty, even when using only basic, easily acquired skills. This is not to say that the craft is easily mastered. Many of the pieces offered in the gallery reflect years of development and refinement in technique, careful planning and unfortunately, lots of broken glass.”
