Where to See Cape Cod's Holiday 'Giants'
There have been "over two dozen" of these beloved giant light sculptures created, with more "being added annually." Most of these holiday giants can be seen "mainly along Route 6A in Sandwich and a few other towns on Cape Cod such as Dennis."
Who Created Cape Cod's Holiday 'Giants'
Michael Magyar of The Glass Studio "creates giant lighted sculptures which are on display during the holiday season mainly along Route 6A in Sandwich and a few other towns on Cape Cod such as Dennis. Over two dozen have been made; more are being added annually."
The Glass Studio on Cape Cod was founded in 1992 by Michael and Keiko Magyar with their two children. They came from Japan and with the help of Chiyoji Asahara from The Glass Studio in Otaru (Japan), were able to create the studio and gallery. Since then the two have worked excruciatingly hard to bring their love of glass to the cape, and spread that love to many others." - The Glass Studio
