Hand Made Glass Curiosities

In Kiva's workshop, molten glass drips like honey through the air. A flick of the fingers, a turn of the wrist; and a tiny pitcher is born from this fluid and mercurial medium.
Rows upon rows of candy-colored glass tubing and rods await their turn to be transformed into unique artifacts to adorn your home, your body and your world.

Watch Etsy's Handmade Portrait video featuring Kiva Ford...


Kiva Ford's passion with glass began early in life, and was anchored with his college degree in Scientific Glassblowing. Through years of work creating complex glass instruments for scientist's use, he has perfected his precision and technique in manipulating glass.

Beyond the scientific community, Kiva is more commonly known for his exquisite glass goblets, bottles, pendants and vessels. Kiva's artistic work is influenced by his interests in history, mythology, and the natural world. His creations span from delicate pendants and tiny vases to large, elaborate bottles encasing glass animals, figures, and even smaller versions of themselves!

His works have been featured in The New York Times, Time Out New York, PBS's "Craft in America" series, and in art galleries and boutiques throughout the country.
