Ouray Glassworks & Pottery

619 Main Street, Ouray, Colorado

       The next time you are in Ouray, go by Ouray Glassworks, say hello to Annie Quathamer and check out her latest pieces of hand blown glass. Annie's glass is beautiful and unique. She worked as an apprentice under Sam Rushing, who, along with his wife, Diane, owned Ouray Glassworks for 26 years. In 2017, the Rushings retired, and Annie and fiancé Andres Marin bought the business. 

Annie and Andres are an integral part of the Ouray community. In addition to blowing glass, Annie operates Ouray Dog Walking service and has worked with San Juan Mountain Guides. She is an accomplished white water kayaker and a member of Ouray Mountain Rescue.


Most days, Annie and Paco, can be found in the shop, which is located in the center of town at 619 Main Street.
