Story Behind the Art:
Since the 1990s, Javier Gutierrez and Efren Canteras have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. '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.
'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. I start by employing people as my assistants, but I aim to train them to be experts, glass blowers equipped with a beautiful and useful skill.
Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efren transforms the designs into a reality.' The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
These glasses are heavy and solid so don't expect to receive delicate goblets when you order them. For hand blown pieces, the set I received was remarkably uniform in size and color. The lip of the bowl is smooth and well finished and the intensity of the crimson hue is lovely. The glass balances well in my hand. I am enjoying using these glasses with my friends.
