David Jacobson Glass, located at 210 Choate Road in Montville, creates unique hand- blown and kiln-formed glass, including bowls, platters, vases, and drinking glasses as well as sculpture and lighting. Utilizing contemporary design in the Venetian tradition, his work appears in major museum shops and galleries and is prized by collectors.
Visitors and students are welcome at this newly renovated 200-year-old barn, (opening fall 2013,) where they can watch glass being made and view examples of his work in the gallery section of the studio. With long views of the mountains, and just minutes from True’s Pond, Lake St. George, John’s Ice Cream (the best!), Stevens Pond, Liberty Tool and Liberty Graphics, a visit here makes a rewarding half-day/day trip. Appointments are suggested, especially for groups.
Make your very own paperweight, holiday ornament, or drinking glass with David’s assistance — call for appointment and pricing. Individual and group lessons are also available by arrangement.
DIRECTIONS: Take Route 3 west toward Augusta from Belfast. After about 20 minutes you’ll come to Choate Road on your left, a dirt road. If you pass a log cabin called Rustic Arts, you’ve gone too far. Take a left onto Choate. Go one mile, and where the road turns sharp right, my studio is that house on the corner on the right. The only house there. You’ll see the sign for David Jacobson Glass on the side of the studio.
