In recent years we have moved to create annual glass ornaments in our Artsglas glass shop. Themes have varied by year, with no rhyme or reason.
For two decades, we have created holiday ‘looking glasses’ at the holidays. This greeting for 1994 presented soft glasses on a letter-pressed card.
These examples are among the earliest, and only when we noticed that people actually kept them, did this turn into a tradition.
Cast Cast Aluminum Glasses
A big shift was the move into metal. This first exploration was cast aluminum, created in a facility that produces trucks under skateboards.
Stainless Steel Glasses
The high-point of the metal glasses period was this set of waterjet stainless steel glasses, which shipped in their individual glass ‘boxes’.
Paper Surfboard Forms
One of our more unusual holiday promotions, created in connection with InSync Media.
