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.'

Just as they appear. Look like old Mexican glass and durable.Read More
These glasses are nice. They are a lot darker in person. Wanted the color in the picture.Read More
These glasses are beautiful, but they tend to come apart revealing very sharp edges. I bought two sets, but have only opened the first box, as I was saving the second for our next party. I've been using the glasses, and I love their size, shape and color. However, when I wash them (usually with a sponge in hot soapy water), two of the first six glasses have thus far developed cracks that go around the circumference of the glass, and one of them separated along this line, baring a sharp edge that could easily slice to the bone. I'll be asking for replacements or a refund, but I'm worried that there is a flaw in the design or manufacture of these glasses that renders them a potential danger. I'd be reluctant to recommend these glasses to anyone.Read More
I love the little bubbles! They are a pretty green bubbled glass. Nice weight to them!Read More
nice color and thickness and well made and they don't slipRead More
It took a while to get here, but I think they were worth the wait. I barely notice the air bubbles that the other reviewers mentioned, I have to really look close to see them. But that's part of the beauty of blown glass!They all came intact with no issues. The color was fairly true to the picture. Perhaps a bit more translucent.Read More
Very nice quality for the price. Nothing fancy here...just nice hand blown glasses for everyday use.Read More
