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.

At first I was disappointed in these glasses. They reminded me of jelly jars, and seemed plain and a bit too basic for my tastes. It wasn't obvious that they were hand blown. However, they grew on me, and I came to appreciate that they seemed well made and sturdy,
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
My husband likes high end dishes, and so I was uncertain how he would welcome these. He likes them very much, as do I. They hold a lot of water, and go nicely with out other dishes. I put them in the dishwasher with no problem.
I love these glasses! They came when they were supposed to, and shipped beautifully. They are just how they appear in the picture. No problems what so ever, with order, delivery, or shipping. Can't say enough good things! Except perhaps I wish I had bought more!
These glasses are beautiful, but really over priced. They cost about a dollar a piece at stores here. Granted, we are located on the Mexican border and have access to great and inexpensive goods from across the border, but I would think that one could buy them somewhere else on the internet for much less.
Beautiful hand-crafted blue glasses made in Mexico by artisans and shipped to the USA and then to us. The glasses were extremely well packed and came with a postcard from the local glass-makers thanking us for the purchase - a nice touch. Great quality for a great price.
