the prettiest flowers have the best timing. they unfold in the spring, in the warm light of the reborn sun, in the air so clear after an april rain that each petal’s different shades of purple glow vividly. so many purples, too many to count, even more copious than the flowers that cluster on every 'hyacinth' stalk.
gathering creation begins when our glassblowers first gather the hot glass on the blowpipe from a 2,300 degree oven. that's why we call it the "hot shop".
the unique color of each glassybaby comes from the dropping and rolling of the glass, with three layers of glass creating the color of each glassybaby.
we call it glassblowing because the artist actually blows into the mold to begin creating the shape and forming the “ice”, or the clear glass bottom.
trimming the glassybaby is when the glassblower crafts that perfect iconic glassybaby shape.
glassybaby is born the moment they stamp the bottom with the glassybaby logo, and put in the cooling oven for 15-16 hours to relieve the glass of any stress.
every glassybaby gives 10%
10% (at least $4.40) of the revenue from each glassybaby is donated
