The Richardson Team at Keller Williams Cleveland loves supporting local business. As Cleveland’s #1 real estate team, we take pride in what our hometown has to offer. We are constantly learning about new businesses in our community and love having the opportunity to share it with you.

Nestled in the heart of Old Woolen Mill, just outside downtown Cleveland is Glassworks Gallery & Studio. Inside is a wonderland of glass creations hand crafted by Kim Currin from recycled bottles and art glass. With the holidays just around the corner, Glassworks will help you with all your party and gift giving needs. Kim makes everything from jewelry and nightlights to games and platters right there in her shop. You’ll even find quilts handmade by Gibby Girl Design, beautiful greeting cards meticulously made by Melody Leamon, and real Himalayan Pink Salt lamps.  In her attached shop, Church Street Candle Company, Kim makes delicious smelling candles with scents like peach, pancakes & syrup, and java mocha. Her candles are made without harsh chemicals and toxins, she even has a line of soy candles that are free of dye and made from the cleanest wax.

Kim began glass etching many years ago as a hobby to create gifts for friends and family. She bought a glass cutter and soon created unique glasses from wine and beer bottles with personalized touches that made sensational gifts. From this hobby grew Glassworks Gallery & Studio. Kim now uses her talents to not only create beautiful art, but to give back to the community. Local school groups clean up debris around Cleveland from areas like the Greenway and bring Kim the glass. She turns the glass into jewelry then gives half the profits to Keep America Beautiful, a nonprofit organization committed to educating the community on environmental beautification.

If you’re looking for a fun night out, Kim offers parties! Participants can make either a pendant or a nightlight. The cost is $25 + tax per person and can accommodate groups from 4-8. If your group is larger, just call Kim to work something out. If interested, call 423-413-8715 or email at kimsglass@gmail.com.
