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.'

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
