August 17 - 19 2017 - Furnace is Hot! See Production note below
To celebrate hand crafted art glass in the tradition of the founder of Manheim Borough, Henry William Stiegel, circa 1763.
Local artisans craft beautiful glass pieces both useful and decorative for resale and demonstration of the art form. Tourist delight in watching or taking part in creating one of a kind pieces.
Production and Tours Available Now. August 17 - 19 2017. We brought the furnace up for some trophy production. So, as they say, strike while the fire is hot. Call for a tour or special request production today. We are largely staffed by volunteers, I am trying to keep posting schedule updates. Our gaffers come from around the region to use our facilities, and the furnace burns at 2,200 degrees, a temperature not quickly achieved. It presents scheduling predictability issues.
Retail of our products continues during normal business hours at Longenecker's True Value Hardware, Doe Run Road, Manheim. Facebook Stiegel Glassworks 1976 or paste to your browser:
