Everything we loved with our new light added to our desert yard at night. We are delighted with Jeff Price and his artistic glass blowing with all the different colors.

Thank you so much for this beautiful piece. I am an herbalist and it is serving to "cork" a large container of retired dried herbs. My selection of your glorious art was because it looks like plant greenery shimmering throughout. I am beyond pleased.

About

I love blowing glass

Although I occasionally blew glass over several years, it wasn't until 1998 that I began blowing full time. As I didn't have my own studio then, I used others studios.

Then in 2002, with my dad's assistance, I built my own glass blowing studio. It was a lot of work because we wanted it to be state-of-the-art, with all sorts of advanced technology so I could really express my creativity.

I have a large electrically-powered glass furnace, two glory holes, two large annealers, a spray booth, a power box, etc. I also have all of the equipment needed to give a piece a perfect finish:: a diamond grinding lap, diamond saw, propane torches etc.

It's a wonderful environment to work in, and very inspiring.

    I'm a second-generation glass blower. The year I was born was the year my dad made his first glass blowing studio in our backyard. As I watched my parents blow glass, I said to myself, THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO DO. And now I'm doing it!

Welcome to my shop. All of the items in my shop are glass, hand blown by me in my own studio.

I use many techniques, some very old, some quite new. Here are a few of my favorite ones. They are all very different, but each produces a very striking, memorable effect.

CALCEDONIO (silver) glass. This glass was developed in 1460 in Italy. Its method of manufacture was a closely guarded secret for over 400 years. We now know that the secret ingredient is silver -- lots of silver.

Using silver in a glass is almost mystical. That is, this one colorant gives every color of the rainbow, plus brown. As you can see from my pieces, calcedonio glass usually has many bands of various colors, often resembling gem stones.

Because of the high cost of the silver, and the technical difficulties of handling this glass, very few glassblowers use it. As a result very few people have seen it, and it makes a very unusual, distinctive gift.

IRIDIZED glass. This technique was developed in Hungary in 1850. It was made famous by Tiffany in the late 1800s, and was again used in the 1920s. It is made by spraying a metallic salt onto the glass while it is being formed. This lovely technique can produce glass surfaces that vary from a soft, warm glow to an outrageously brilliant, multicolored mirror.

DICHROIC glass. This striking glass is often used in jewelry. It is rarely used in larger pieces of glass because it is very expensive. I, however, find it worth the additional expense to include it in many of my pieces. It gives an internal fire to a piece, which is unmatched by any other technique.

LEOPARDATO (Italian for "spotted") is a technique in which I pick up small lumps of color on either a clear or colored background. When the lumps melt they form myriads of spots. Sometimes I use just one color of lumps, other times two or more. The overall effect can vary from subtle color variations to dramatic, eye-popping textures.

CRACKLE glass is produced by briefly submerging the very hot, molten glass in cold water during the glass-forming process. This causes the outer layer to crack. When the glass is then reheated and expanded (by blowing into the blowpipe) the cracks grow larger.

Crackle glass was invented in the 16th century by the master glassblowers of Venice. Until recently, crackle glass was made exclusively of transparent glass. Although I often make pieces in that classic technique, I frequently employ opaque glasses in my designs. But whether one uses transparents or opaques (or both), the crackle effect yields a very distinctive, exciting piece of glass -- which by its very nature is unique.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I prefer immediate payment through PayPal. (You can follow the link to PayPal at check out.) You do not need a PayPal account in order to use a credit card there. Simply select the option to pay without an account.

I can also directly accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express credit cards, but I feel that going through PayPal is a more secure transaction.

I also accept USPS postal money orders. If you want to do this, contact me and I'll send you my address.

If you want the item shipped insured, let me know so I can adjust the amount of your invoice. I pay the insurance on any order over $50.

California orders pay 8.25% sales tax.
Shipping
At present, I am shipping items only within the U.S.

I ordinarily ship within 1 to 2 business days of receiving your payment (unless I am out of town at a craft show). The only exception is if you use a PayPal e-check. In that case I must wait 3 to 4 days for it to clear.

I generally use Priority Mail for light objects and UPS for heavier ones. If you desire some other arrangement, just let me know.


I am always concerned that your items arrive promptly and safely. Items are always securely packed to prevent breakage. They are wrapped with bubble wrap and larger pieces are double-boxed. I have not had a single item break in transit in the past 10 years.

If your PayPal address is different from your Etsy shipping address, please tell me which one to ship to.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. My work is always 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

If you are at all unhappy about your purchase, please notify me within 3 days of arrival. I will gladly refund the price of the item upon its safe return. Shipping fees are nonrefundable. If you return it, please carefully repackage the item in the packing materials in which you received it and return it to me in its original condition. You are responsible for the return shipping and insurance. (Actually, you can either send it to me or hand it to me when you see me at a show.)

If an insured item breaks during shipment, please notify me immediately so that the problem can be properly taken care of.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do not do special orders. Each piece I produce is unique, so if you see something you like you may want to order it before someone else does.

If the item is a gift, I can send it directly to the recipient, if you wish. I can also enclose a note from you.
