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.

I am an artist myself. A potter. And for me weigth, size and proportion are just as important as the beauty of the product. The wine glasses have the perfect amount of weight and they feel great! I will purchase again.Read More
Purchased these Novica wine glasses as a gift to compliment a Ralph Lauren salt and pepper shaker set and serving pieces that are chrome and tortoise. I was looking to offer the giftee a casual alternative to formal stemware when using the RL pieces and I thought this fit the bill nicely. The design and shape are very attractive and substainal, yet not bulky or chunky or difficult to hold. The stem itself is fairly thick and the goblet portion of the glass is obviously thicker than the average stemware wine glass ( more like the thickness of an everyday drinking glass or slightly more), but again not too chunky or cumbersome and the top of the glass is gently rounded and smoothed. For the most part the glasses are symetrical across the top. Only one glass in the set of 6 was slighty uneven. In my opinion they are well suited for a semi-formal affair as well as a casual affair and I would love to receive them as a gift as they are modern with the tortoise print yet still somewhat of a classic.Read More
