Description

Oaxacan Free-Hand Spun Blown-Glass
Highboy Tumbler in Pale-Aqua Blue
Fish Scale Twist
MCM Mexican Barware

I enjoyed the multi-purpose shape and size of these glasses. It adds an extra layer of fun to be able to mix up their house-hold duties.
They make great vases for a rustic tablescape. As Barware, they preform as perfect vessels for Long Island Iced-tea - And at Family functions they become a favorite for everything from lemonade to wine-spritzers.

The rugged looseness of their design and individuality commend them to everyone.

I moved to Tucson, Az in the 1980s and started collecting this Spun-Glass. I was captivated by the looseness and expression, so much like brush strokes and so little like the canned-jar like glass-monstrosities I had become anesthetized by ... Glass that had so little personality that I shun to think it had a Human hand in it's making.

So drawn to the artistic and expressive pieces I started filling up my apartment, and later my store, with these handmade jewels. I had heard that they were crafted in Oaxaca, Puebla, Guadalajara, and Baja ... The truth being that all the states of Mexico have Glass blowing centers and each has it's history of success and style. I do believe that many pieces were made in Mid Century Oaxaca, Mexico. I would love to know for certain.

I bought most of my collection between 1985-1995 -and they were considered old then. I have a great collection of this type of work and will be listing them as I open boxes from storage. -Enjoy
