Bay Blown Glass’ Business Story
We are two emerging artists who collaborate to create beautiful and unique hand blown glassware and hand crafted sculptures for the world to enjoy. Living and working in as well as being inspired by the San Francisco Bay Area’s city-landscape, culture, arts, and community. We are drawn together by a great passion and love for the arts concentrating specifically in glass, its process and the qualities that it, as a material, has to offer. Each Piece we create is a 1 of a kind, with unique individual character, and hand crafted with love.
The Start of Something Wonderful
One of us is inspired by the perfect imperfections of people, places, and things. Enjoying places like the train tracks and the freeway. The quirkiness and honesty of it all. Liking to see the weeds grow out of the concrete and the graffiti on the walls.
The other is driven by the duality of nature and the city along with the juxtaposition of people and places. Each contained within each other and understood through travel and exploration.
Glass the ideal material is fluid yet stiff, timeless but temporal, captivating while transparent, malleable but fragile, illuminated and reflective- just like human nature.
