Story Behind the Art: Since the 1990s, Javier Gutierrez and Efren Canteras have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. 'This type of work is a beautiful craft. I love blown glass because of the pure imagination poured into every piece created,' confides Efren. 'Even though the art of blowing glass originally came to Mexico from Spain, and it is practiced all over the world, Mexico's blown glass artistry is unique,' says Javier enthusiastically. 'I was 15 years old when I began blowing glass. Now I have the opportunity to teach the art of blowing hot glass to other young artisans.'

These are beautiful hand-blown glasses made in Mexico. The cobalt blue swirls are vibrant and eye-catching. There are some air bubbles in places given that these are hand made. They also have that slightly greenish recycled glass tint. It doesn't bother me, just something to be aware of. The beautiful blue swirls far outweigh the downside of a slight green tint. You don't notice that if not next to something clear - then it becomes obvious. As another reviewer noted these are sturdy, robust, and a bit thick. Again, they are so pretty I don't mind that, but they are the thickest wine glasses I have, that's for sure. Have to be a little more careful drinking out of them just because the rim is larger than usual. I love them, however. So unique and pretty. I'll probably use more for display than everyday use because of the thicker rim.
