La Méduse - Verre Soufflé

La Méduse is an artisanal blown glass company based in the Magdalen Islands since 1985. In the century-old building where they have their workshop, Catherine and Sophie work with a view of the sea. Over time, they have developed several original collections inspired by their maritime environment. Among others, they have a whole collection of memorial glass art available online. They therefore created blown glass urns as well as a whole series of personalized glass jewels, which incorporate cremation ashes inside (pendants, rings, earrings, marbles, etc.). A great way to give an eternal touch to your deceased loved ones. They also have a variety of pieces of blown glass for everyday enjoyment: Unique pieces, Chandeliers, Kitchen objects, Decorations, etc. La Méduse includes a shop and a blown glass workshop. Catherine and Sophie create their glass works there. Observe the glassblowers at work and discover the different techniques used as well as the reality of workshop work. Also, take advantage of your visit to offer yourself a unique souvenir, handmade in the Magdalen Islands. Or a course in blown glass! At the boutique, you will find glass jewelry and unique, decorative or sculptural pieces. An excellent opportunity to bring back a souvenir from the Islands! Welcome to all!
