“I truly enjoy Hot Sand, it was the second time we were there and I truly loved the experience. We went for our girlfriend’s birthday. I love glass blowing and the sandboxes to cast your hand or something of importance in for a keepsake memory. The staff is so helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you all for a great day.

— Susan Lynn Combes

“Just picked up the items I made last week. I can’t even begin to describe how much I love every single one of them! Not only did I get to assist with blowing my own handmade ornament and pumpkin to have for my baby’s first fall and Christmas, I also had his feet cast in glass. Then, I wanted to try a hand print, but my little guy wouldn’t open his little fists. So, I asked if we could try a fist QuickCast. Can I just tell you? It is the most awesome little fist! I can see his nails and you can even see how he tucks his little thumb inside his fingers. What an amazing way to freeze this little tidbit in time. The staff was amazing.
