Discover Ames

Ciccotti Art Glass

Ciccotti Art Glass is located just outside of Ames, Iowa in a small town called Napier. Our gift shop/gallery is open to the public during our regular hours or by appointment. In the gallery you will find a wide range of work such as vases, platters, wall installations, paperweights, perfume bottles, fish, pigs, flowers, bulbs, and more. Prices range from $20 to $500. We do custom orders and market both wholesale and retail. You can see us at art shows around the Midwest. See our event schedule for those dates.

The studio is in operation year round with an occasional shutdown for maintenance.  Our regular hours are Monday-Saturday 10 am – 4 pm.  Summer hours will vary due to shows, so call ahead before coming out.

In addition to producing fine glassware, we also offer demonstrations during our open houses to the public. Larger pieces are usually produced on Saturdays.

Are you interested in trying glassblowing? Ciccotti Art Glass offers opportunities to blow your own glass ball or make a flower or paperweight from glass. No experience is necessary. We provide materials and our instruction is personalized for all skill levels. Further classes can be taken to develop skills if you are interested. See our schedule of events for details about these opportunities.
