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 bought another set from Novica and they are all amazing. I couldn't be happier with them.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The glasses are perfect in my mind. They are solidly made and are not made of that extremely thin glass like a lot of cheaper dishes out there. I will continue purchasing these when I need more glasses.
These are dishwasher safe. Check out the NAVICO website. These are artisan made and are associated with a National Geographic promotion for artists around the world. We've been looking for years to replace our green glasses. These are beautiful. They are a darker green than shown with a nice dark rim.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent weight and workmanship.
How accurate was the sizing? These hold 18 ounces easy but walking around with 16 ounces would be safer.
