About Little River Hot Glass
Little River Hot Glass Studio is a small glassblowing studio located in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. The studio was founded by Michael Trimpol in 1995, and has been producing beautiful pieces of art ever since.
The artists at Little River Hot Glass work gathering and blowing the molten glass until each piece achieves the balance and harmony they are striving for. They often incorporate processes such as cold working, sandblasting, cutting, and polishing in order to accentuate or focus characteristics of the material.
