HANDBLOWN RECYCLED GLASSWARE
GLASS BLOWING IS AN ANCIENT ART FORM
Glass blowing has been practiced by Mexican artisans since the art form was introduced to the country in the 16th century. The techniques used in glassblowing have remained nearly the same since it was first discovered. It involves molten glass, and a hollow pipe. Air is blown through that pipe and the pliable glass blooms into a bubble form. From there, it’s shaped by swinging, rolling, blowing or pressing. Additional elements may be attached using welding. The size, shape and design features are nearly endless, and are limited only by the skill of the artisan.
SUSTAINABILITY, FORM AND FUNCTION
We work with glass blowing studios located in Baja, Guadalajara and Monterrey. All studios utilize only recycled glassware from local village communities to craft the pieces. Piles of cast-off liquor and wine bottles, vases, and other glassware are reborn into beautiful and unique pieces.
Each and every glass is individually hand-blown, featuring unique variations in size and shape, making every piece a true work of art.
Our line of glassware is handblown from 100% recycled & reclaimed materials. Featuring unique designs and long-lasting construction. Thick glass - a hallmark of Mexican glassware - provides durability, making them ideal for everyday use as well as entertaining.
