Drinking glasses, 'Contoured' (set of 6)

Item # 38709
Currently out of stock

These attractive glasses by Javier and Efrén are skillfully shaped by hand, using traditional blown glass techniques. The contoured appearance is achieved by gently pressing a blowing tube against the surface of the glass. The glass blower turns the glass by hand and moves perpendicular to the tube, creating the spiral contour. The appearance is enhanced by the lime green tincture of the glasses. The set of six makes exquisite complement to cool and refreshing drinks for those hot summer days. Made in Mexico.

Artisan: Javier and Efrén

Artisan Javier and Efrén

The artistry of Javier and Efrén has been featured in periodicals ranging from Sunset magazine to the Miami Herald.

Since the 1990s, Javier Gutierrez and Efrén 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 Efrén.

"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. I start by employing people as my assistants, but I aim to train them to be experts, glass blowers equipped with a beautiful and useful skill."

Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efrén transforms the designs into a reality. "Efrén and I make a great team, and over the past 15 years we have designed and created original pieces with a distinctly Mexican accent."
