More on Mohawk Steel & Glass Co.

The creator of Mohawk Steel & Glass Co. has deep roots in town—literally. Jeremy Thomley now owns the family Christmas tree farm, which his grandfather and father ran for decades, starting in 1967. Now, Jeremy and his wife Lindsay operate Thomley’s Christmas Tree Farm & Gift Shop.

They’ve also added a new tradition into the mix: glass blowing at Mohawk Steel & Glass Co. With the help of business partner Daniel Bell, they established the single place in Mississippi allowing folks to make glass-glass blown art. Since they opened, they’ve also been featured on HGTV!

What kinds of pieces can I make?

Nothing about Mohawk Steel & Glass Co. is boring—including the pieces you can make. When bookings open, you can craft things like:

  • Pumpkins;
  • Bowls;
  • Ornaments;
  • Vases;
  • And paperweights.

Glass blowing not your speed? They also offer metalworking classes!

When can I create a glass-blown piece?

Glass has to reach a high temperature when artists work with it. So, it makes sense that Mohawk Steel & Glass Co. functions as a seasonal business. No one wants to deal with furnaces and summer heat!

However, when October rolls back around, you can book a class online here. They tend to offer classes from then to December!
