Item InformationFrom kiln to table, Annieglass is a testament to the lasting beauty of American craft. Sustainably handcrafted by skilled artisans in our Watsonville studio on California’s central coast, Annieglass captures artist Annie Morhauser's philosophy of wabi-sabi--the Japanese belief in the beauty of imperfection--through an ancient glass “slumping” process innovated by Annie.
Combining artisanal techniques with new technology, Annie’s imaginative designs are cut into sheets of architectural glass. Select collections are hand painted with 24k gold and genuine platinum, and then each piece is individually set by hand into kilns, where at high temperatures the glass drapes over handmade ceramic molds. Precious metals permanently fuse to the glass during this step, and the glass “slumps” into their mold’s individual patterns, rendering each piece of Annieglass a unique work of art.
The result differs from traditional glass blowing not only in its special translucent textured finish but also in its remarkable durability: the glass becomes tarnish and chip resistant – and dishwasher safe. Adding to authenticity, each piece is hand-engraved with a studio signature.
