What we do

Commissioned Works

Looking for unique, artisanal glass installations for your home or business? 

We work with homeowners,  business owners, builders, architects, and designers to collaboratively design and manufacture unique lighting, sculpture and glass installations. 

Partner with our own resident artists, or collaborate on designs or your own.

Studio Collections

But rest assured, all products are made sustainably, and proceeds serve to support our partners fighting climate change and our efforts to develop artists in our community.

We strive to be a new kind of business in one of the oldest industries in human history (glassblowing and casting dates back to the Bronze Age). We come from these roots with all of our artists trained in historic Venetian technique. Yet we use modern creative and fabrication tools like digital design, CNC, and 3d fabrication to press the envelope of custom design.

More importantly, we are committed to demonstrating the first truly sustainable, circular manufacturing model in glass studio work. The works we sell will use sustainable materials (waste wine bottles) and sustainable energy (waste veggie oil, electricity). And our relationship with our consumer will be completely circular. Meaning everything you buy from us comes with a promise...

THE PROMISE

When you are done with our products, we promise to help you find a new home for it (recommerce), provide credit for you to return it to have it remade into more sustainably made beautiful works (reuse), or even just let you use it for short periods (rental). None of our products should end in a landfill.
