While much of what we produce is sold at local craft fairs it can also be found in several gift shops and galleries in the area. Need a small, reasonably priced hostess or teacher gift? Try one of our gift boxed small petal pockets or a pendant. Need something a little bigger? How about a larger petal pocket or a cheese tray, gift boxed and wrapped with a serving knife. Need something more significant? Maybe one of our garden sculptures that will last year round. Need it now? Go to our “in shops" section to find out where you can get it right away.


Everything made in our studio is an original, one of a kind, hand crafted work of art. It is designed, hand cut, and kiln formed in our local Hudson Valley studio using compatible glass annealed for strength and durability. In some cases it may have gone through several firings. It is completely functional and safe for food or other household use. Hand washing is recommended.



Schedule:  May 8 - May 9


The Mayfest Makers and Farmers Essential Market brings a curated selection of the Hudson Valley’s finest producers, including farms, distilleries, wineries, restaurants, artists, artisans, and more to the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and west approach to Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park on Saturday, May 8 and Sunday, May 9 from 12 - 5 p.m.  Vendors will exhibit their wares for tasting or purchase, allowing participants to support the local agribusinesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Socially distanced throughout the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and the Walkway’s Ulster Welcome Center Plaza (87 Haviland Road, Highland, NY, 12528), Mayfest features not only farm-fresh products and food and beverage samples, but also art installations, locally-made goods, cooking and cocktail demonstrations, a special area for children’s activities, and more.
