“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”  - Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you stop by our Madrona hotshop or watch the made by hand video on our website (or in the post below) you can get a better understanding of the process behind making a glassybaby.   It takes four glassblowers, three layers of molten glass and two thousand degrees to make one glassybaby. The skillful work that goes into creating these one-of-a-kind pieces is detailed, precise, and takes a lot of care.  There are 70 unique, talented glassblowers on staff working day and swing shifts, seven days a week here in Seattle. Step by step they work together, creating the colors of light which we then send throughout the world.
