    Story Behind the Art:

    Since the 1990s, Javier Gutierrez and Efren Canteras have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. The artistry of Javier and Efren has been featured in periodicals ranging from Sunset magazine to the Miami Herald. '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.'

    • Really nice mexico made glasses.

      The size is perfect for ice tea, water, soda, holds a 12 oz can of soda with ice. So very pretty, very classy!! I wish it would have come with 8, so I just ordered another set, now I will have 12, that is ok in case I break some. I am washing them by hand. I do not trust them to the dishwasher.

    • pretty but glass cracked

      They're really pretty and a great size, but all except for two of them cracked about six months after getting them. I still use them because the glass is so thick and the cracks didn't go through to the outside layer, but I gave low ratings because of that. The description says they're dishwasher safe, but now I wonder if maybe they really aren't.

    • Mexican Glasses

      These are beautiful thick glasses with a hand made appearance. They are a very good value for the money. I was initially concerned about the brown spotted design but each glass is different and they blend very well with casual china.

    • Six peices of art for your table

      These are very unique ,in color and patterns.They are on the heavy side- like a sturdy tumbler-not for children,or older people with arthritis. I will use them as everyday glasses because they are so pretty,but they would be great for a party.Get a good zoom on them to see how light the patter is on each one.

    • Great drinking glasses

      I am very happy with the quality of these drinking glasses. I won't have to worry about them cracking in the dishwasher. And I like the funky tortoiseshell coloring.

    • Beautiful but breakable

      These glasses are heavy and beautiful but NOT dishwasher safe. They all broke after a few months. Bummer because they really are pretty just to delicate for my home.

    • Great Craftsmanship!

      Great craftsmanship! Wish I had ordered an additional set. Very heavy glasses. One chipped when I tried to separated it from another glass in the set....Do not stack them.
