About Us

The Glass Blowers of Manitou was established in 1974 by Joe & Paula Pastuer. While vacationing summers in Manitou Springs from Chicago, Joe found a spot in the back of a pool hall to show his new craft. After a couple of summers, they decided to sell Mr. Fats Pizza in Chicago, pack up their station wagon, their two sons, and move to Manitou Springs permanently. They loved Manitou and enjoyed several years of success. Now carried on by the next generation, our goal is to carry on traditions and provide the best blown glass from Colorado and beyond.
