About

A Couple's Journey in Handblown Glass

Avolie Glass is a man and woman team, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are both glass artists in their own right, having exhibited their sculptural work at places such as the The Oakland Museum of California, National Liberty Museum, San Jose City Hall, and the San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design. They also share a personal relationship, and after years of creating their individual work, found themselves wanting a separate outlet for their creative side. Soon the idea of working as a team to reinterpret the classics in functional glass art emerged.

Avolie Glass was born, allowing them to unite in a venture driven by creativity, enthusiasm, love, and the artistic process. They have been making glass art for nearly 20 years combined, and bring together their strengths to form a stronger whole. Dean is the backbone to their technical success, having had experience such as working on projects for Dale Chihuly. Demi offers the artistic vision, and develops their natural color palette and designs. In working together they merge their strengths, making a team with one strict policy - always end the day with a kiss!

They are classically trained in the Italian tradition of glass, but move beyond tradition in their designs. Their goal is to create an innovative fusion of those traditional Italian techniques, with a contemporary aesthetic. Avolie Glass specializes in offering new interpretations of the ordinary vase, bowl, or pumpkin. They sell their work at galleries nation wide, and can be found locally at the San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design and at Shady Lane in Palo Alto. Their work has been featured in articles in the Palo Alto Weekly and the San Francisco Chronicle, and they avidly support the glass arts through volunteer work and contributions to fundraising events. Their work has been featured on TV as well, as set decor in several seasons of Giada de Laurentiis' award winning show, "Giada at Home".

    The joining of 2...Avolie Glass comes from the Italian word "Avolio". This refers to the tiny piece of glass that connects the stem to the cup when creating a Venetian goblet...this reflects our journey, coming together as one, in both life and art.

Additional policies and FAQs
Website:

You can visit our website at www.avolieglass.com, to see a full portfolio and complete list of the galleries we work with. If an artist claims to work with galleries in their ads, ask them for a list to verify that their claims our legitimate. You can read about us on our website, and see a current list of our shows and events.

Custom Orders:

We can custom make just about anything so if you want something different please let us know. Orders of this kind require more detailed conversations with the client, and the process is more lengthy. While a bit more expensive, you receive a one of a kind piece, made to order. Custom orders are non-refundable and no cancellations can be made once the process is started.

Since our items are handmade, each piece will vary in size, shape, and color. If you are buying more than one similar item, please be aware that handmade items will not be identical - there will be small differences between the items.

Sale items and Seconds:

From time to time we will offer items from our inventory that we call seconds. These items will be put on Sale for a very reduced price. The reason they are called seconds is that they may contain slight color imperfections or slight modifications in the shape due to experimentation while we work on new designs for our galleries. Since they are not part of our regular gallery line, we are able to reduce the price substantially to you.

Additional Info:
Please note, that we spend a tremendous amount of time on the photographs for our items. We take numerous angles, and make every effort to make sure we are capturing the item in an accurate light. If you need additional photos or information, please don't hesitate to let us know. We want your online buying experience to be a happy one, and when you buy Avolie Glass you can buy with confidence!
