ABOUT RYAN STAUB

A fire was ignited when Ryan Staub took his first glassblowing class 22 years ago. Dedicated to his passion, Staub traveled the world to master the art of glassblowing, learning from and collaborating with the greatest masters of the craft. In doing so, he was able to refine his skills and develop his own cutting-edge design style evident in the intricate art pieces you see today.

To share this passion with the world, Staub also offers lessons in glassblowing at our sister location, Moana Glass by Ryan Staub, located right down the road in Lahaina. In fact, this art gallery doubles as Staub’s glassblowing studio and is where the masterpieces you will find at Ryan Staub Gallery of Glass are made.

Where is pricing information?

Pricing for lessons is in the Lessons Page. Pricing is by the piece.

Pricing for artwork is in the Online Gallery Page. Pieces with prices listed are for sale in the online gallery. Call for pricing of other items.

Do you stock all designs?

All artwork is one of a kind, and while we usually have something available in every series, availability of artwork varies.  If it is for sale in the Online Gallery, we have it available for you.  Please call if there are any questions about a specific piece.

What times & days are your classes?

Classes are by appointment, 9-5, 7 days per week.

When can I pick up my piece?

Lesson pieces have to cool down slowly overnight.  They are usually ready by 3 pm the following day. Be sure to check our hours for closing time on any particular day.

Are there advanced levels for glass blowing?

We are constantly developing new lesson pieces, so you can come back again and again and still have new, fun pieces to make.

Can I make a Wave, Whale Tail, Turtle or Whale?

Our lessons set you up for success and as such, we do not offer these items as lesson pieces. Any of these, plus other items for sale in the gallery require years of dedication and professional experience to be able to make. The pieces we offer are ones we know that we can pull off every time with first-time beginners. If you are wanting a very island-themed sculpture, the Fish Sculpture is a great option.

How long do the lessons take?

We book a half hour per piece, up to three pieces. Since orientation happens all at the same time, we can go a little quicker for 4 pieces or more.

How many people can work on one piece?

One piece per person is ideal because each person gets the most experience and individual attention from the instructor that way. You can, however, work on one piece as a team of two and still have fun. In some cases, we have done lessons with three people working on one piece, but it is not recommended since each person does not get much time with the material that way.

One piece per person bookings are also ideal because everyone gets their own piece to keep.

How old is the minimum age for glassblowing lessons?

We work with kids 5 years old and up. We tailor the experience to every person/group however. For younger kids, we make it a little less hands-on to insure their safety.

“That fish looks really hard, are you sure I can make that?”

Our lessons are one-on-one with you and a seasoned professional. Your success is guaranteed! We will help you every step of the way and make sure your piece comes out GREAT!

Do you make custom art pieces, lighting or glass sinks to order?

Yes, we do! Ryan Staub has been making custom lighting, glass sinks and artwork for his whole career. If you have an idea of something you’d like made in glass, please contact us and we will be happy to help!

Are Glass Sinks really tough enough to use?

Ryan Staub has been making Glass Sinks for over 15 years. No one has ever broken one. Normal use in a bathroom is fine for a glass sink. The sensitive parts, the bottom, and the lip are usually the thickest part of the piece.

How long does it take to make a piece?

That varies a lot depending on the complexity of the piece and on who is making it. Glassblowing is extremely difficult to master and even professionals with over 20 years of experience are constantly learning new things about the material. The longer someone blows glass, the more efficiently they can make their designs, but that efficiency comes at the expense of years of dedication. Many of Ryan Staub’s pieces are comprised of pre-made parts that take weeks, or sometimes longer, to prepare.

Do you host events or demonstrations?

Yes. We typically do a free demo one night in the week; please check our operating hours for which day. We also host glass blowing parties and private group events by appointment.
