BUCKHANNON -

Christmas is coming up quick and if you're still doing your holiday shopping you might be looking for a unique gift for someone special.

You can find those one of a kind items at Ron Hinkle Glass in Upshur County.

Ron Hinkle has been working with glass for more than 40 years and has been creating one of a kind blown-glass items for the last 20 years.

"They're pieces that are sculpted, free form blown, we not only blow pieces but we sculpt them with our tools, we spin them, we swing them, and we stretch them into shape," said Hinkle.

All of that work creates items that you can't find just anywhere.

"Every single piece we make is going to be just a little bit different mainly because they are made free handed. We could make 100 Christmas ornaments and every single one of them is going to be unique," Hinkle explained.

Ron Hinkle Glass has Christmas ornaments, vases, bowls, figurines, and more. Hinkle said he finds inspiration all around him.

"Books, and friends, and neighbors, and flying in planes, and looking inside of a flower. It all translates into a piece of glass forming. You can come here and you can see literally hundreds of different Christmas ornaments, and hundreds of ideas for gifts," said Hinkle.

The items in Hinkle's store range in price from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars.

He said there is something for everyone's taste and price range.

Ron Hinkle Glass can be found on Sago Road just outside of Buckhannon.
