Hands down, no questions asked, cups are my favorite thing to make when I am blowing glass. I think I like that they are meant to be used and held and in a world where people are constantly told “not to touch” it is a welcome change of pace.
A glass was the first thing I ever made in the hot shop. My mom still has it. To say it has character would be polite. While I must admit every now and then I make a glass and wonder what the heck I was doing, more often than not they are delightful objects to hold, look at and, and drink from.
The glasses featured in this section are a mix of things I make for fun and technical exercises I challenge myself with to continue to improve my craft. Whatever your beverage of choice, it is sure to taste better out of one of these hand made glasses!
