Story Behind the Art:
Since the 1990s, Javier Gutierrez 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. '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.' Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efren transforms the designs into a reality. 'Efren and I make a great team, and over the past 15 years we have designed and created original pieces with a distinctly Mexican style.'
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.

The glasses arrived well packed and unbroken. I have been looking for this color locally and was unable to find them. They were a good value for their quality. A bit wider in diameter than others I have but that is fine.

I was very pleased with the quality of the glasses. They are a rich cobalt blue color and the craftsmanship of the glass design is simple, yet beautiful. The glass seems to be quite durable and dishwasher safe. I also bought a matching pitcher to go with the glasses and am very happy with the purchase.
