Story Behind the Art: The artistry of Mexican artisans Javier and Efren has been featured in periodicals ranging from Sunset magazine to the Miami Herald. Since the 1990s, they have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. Even though the art of blowing glass originally came to Mexico from Spain, it is practiced all over the world, and Mexico's blown glass artistry is unique. Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efren transforms the designs into a reality.

I love the look of these glasses but.... I invested in several types of glasses from these artisans and several sets of each of the types. However, I have had 3 glasses out of 6 in this set break for no reason and I've only had them for about a month. They've all broke in the same pattern. They break around the base of the glass. One glass broke when I picked it up off of a shelf. One glass broke when I ran cool water in it to rinse it out after using. One glass didn't actually break but had a bad crack around the base of the glass and up into the side when I picked it up off of a shelf to use. It's so disappointing. They are lovely glasses. And the glass itself is fairly thick. But there is something in the technique being used to create the glasses that is a flaw and makes them vulnerable to stress breakage. I'm a middle-aged person living by myself. No kids. No one being rough on the the glasses. I've been very careful in handling them each time I've used them or cleaned them. Each of these glasses had probably only been used a couple of times when they broke. I did wash them on the top shelf of the dishwasher but the product description said that was safe to do. After the money that I invested in these glasses, I'm really concerned that they are all going to continue to break and my heart and wallet along with it.
These glasses are absolutely beautiful. However, I have no idea how the rest will hold up, but two of the six glasses broke before I got the chance to use them once. One came out of the dishwasher broken (they say they're top rack dishwasher safe, and it was on the top rack with a normal cycle in the dishwasher). The other was still warm when I took it out of the dishwasher, and it cracked when I poured cold water into it. I'm hoping Overstock can help me with replacements and this is just a fluke, because I want to love these glasses. But they might be relegated to the "only for when company comes over" cabinet rather than being used every day, which is a bummer.
I bought the glasses & pitcher and couldn't be happier. The rich cobalt blue is absolutely gorgeous. The pitcher pours liquid out perfectly - no sloppy drips. The pitcher is so good looking that you could use it as a vase on your counter. The glasses are thick & sturdy, but feel great in my hand. Not too heavy at all. I feel very fortunate to have purchased these. In fact, I'm so happy with this purchase that I've decided to go ahead & order the tall glasses, as well.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Beautiful deep blue - true to picture
