Story Behind the Art: Since the 1990s, Javier and Efren have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. 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. Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efren transforms the designs into a reality. The artisan holds molten glass with one end of a steel pipe and blows through the other end. The glass is shaped by hand before it cools.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

These glasses were a Christmas gift for my daughter. I happen to love the Mexican hand blown glass with the blue rim and so does she. They are very large and a bit uneven in size which, to me, is part of the appeal. They are hand blown. If you prefer a more even sized, light weight wine glass do not get these.

These are BIG, heavy gobblets. They are not what most would consider a wine glasses. I like drinking out of a larger glass but these are a very thick (maybe 1/4 inch) glass and are quite heavy - awkward for drinking wine. The blue ring is a beautiful cobalt color and they are very well made. I keep mine on display in a cabint and they look very pretty in there. I didn't retuen them because they are so pretty and unique.
