The Story Behind the Art
Since the 1990s, Javier Gutirrez and Efren Canteras have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. '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.

Don't know how the glasses are holding up. It was a gift. They looked very pretty.Read More
These drinking glasses are about the same size as patio acrylic or glass tumbler cups, except they are in a perfect cylinder shape. The size is small enough for children to use but can hold 14 ounces which is great for adult drinking glasses . The glass is heavy and has a quality feel to it. My husband loves them. Packaging was amazing...sheet after sheet of protective bubble wrap. All 6 glasses arrived in perfect condition.Read More
I bought these for a Christmas present and they are the sturdiest glasses for everyday use. They are my nephews favorite to use for his chocolate milk!Read More
The color is very beautiful and the size is nice. I really enjoy using them.Read More
I love these glasses so much, I'm buying two more sets. The color is amazing, I'm receiving such great comments about these glasses, everyone want's to know where I brought them from. I want to fill my cubbard with all of these glasses. The glass size is just right. They took a while to arrive, but they were worth the wait. They came packaged so well, not one broken glass.Read More
I just received my glasses, they were shipped very securely and they all arrived in tact. The glasses are thick and heavy. The bottoms are not smooth due to the hand blown nature. Two of the glasses had orange specks in them--which I did not like. Also I like to store my glasses in my cupboard top down, but these glasses look strange that way as they are not all even on the tops. I think that it took too long to ship these to my house from order date, and when they arrived, I thought they were overpriced.--I expected a better quality of handmade glass than what arrived at my house.Read More
These are wonderful glasses for lots of mixed drinks, but a little too small for something like ice tea. Beautiful Mexican glassware!Read More
These hand blown glasses are absolutely beautiful! They are heavy weight and the perfect size for a drinking glass. The variances in design make them very appealing. I have received several comments already on their appearance. I would not use these for everyday use around pets or children as they are glass, but for the sit down dinner or tea on the patio. I definitely suggest them!Read More
