    i placed an order with davey glass for colbult blue octagonal glasses resulting with polite, helpful aproachable service, practical pakaging of each glass. the finall product resulted in a very happy me:)thankyou. i feel like im drinking water straight from soid crystal, the weight in each glass gives beautiful balance. would a water pitcher be out of the question. i suggest if your keen on these glasses, dive in. not only are they works of art , they are keep sakes.

About

Passion for hot glass, requires entrepreneurship.

I started blowing glass in 2003, and couldn't get enough. Even though on the very first day my mentor Alfred Engerer broke down the costs of creating glass art, and closed his explanation with the following verbatim summary - "Never own your own studio, there's no money in it." I'll never forget it. Now I am endeavouring to make a living through my passion, and prove my mentor wrong. For a time (both before, during and after Sheridan College Craft and Design Glass Major 2006 - 2009) I made other designers production work, but I got frustrated by both the repetition of what I made and minimum wage for backbreaking, unhealthy, skilled labour. Don't get me wrong the time was well spent refining my technique and it allowed me to hone my skills. But I wanted to make my own work- and play with the medium, and see how far I could push myself. By 2010 I was doing art shows to get my work into the public eye. In 2011 I was picked up by a couple galleries that now exhibit my glass pieces, allowing my work to reach a still wider audience. Over the last year and some I have been contacting more galleries, applying for grants, and continue to do shows. I do what I love- and I love what I do, and so I persevere.
