John and Jennie Elias, a husband and wife team, have worked together since 1991 to create a line of colorful, functional blown glass items. They bring art to everyday life. John patterns the glass using small chips of colored glass called “frit.” Each piece is individually blown using traditional glass techniques. A blowpipe is dipped into the pool of melted glass, rolled over bits of colored glass, and shaped into the desired form with gentle blowing and reheating. The piece is then cooled slowly in an annealing oven. Each piece is unique, with variations in patterning and surface quality unlike any other.
