Kettner & G
House of Glass
K&G House of Glass (est. 2023) is our very own glassblowing studio, located in the back of the store. We strive to provide one-of-a-kind, high-quality pieces, fresh out of the kiln, and what better way to accomplish that than by making our glass in house?
Kettner & G Tabacaria is the only smoke shop in San Diego that does both: blow glass and sell it! This type of horizontal integration with the glass industry allows us to stay ahead of the curve by always thinking outside the box.
Our space is available for glass artists to rent at an hourly or monthly rate. Additionally, we partner up with the resident glass artists to offer glassblowing classes to the public.
