About the artisans:
The art of hand blown glass or vidrio soplado has diversified throughout the world, yet it is in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, where allegedly more pieces are crafted by talented artisans with techniques passed down from generation to generation.
Without a doubt, what distinguishes Mexican hand blown glass art is the interplay of clear glass with such colors as cobalt blue and other vibrant hues. Techniques have been refined since the 18th century, when this art form was introduced in Mexico by the Spanish, and spread throughout the country. It is said that blown glass arrived in the region of Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque and Tonala in 1820, thanks to an initiative by the Church whereby priests wanted to improve the work of the small glass workshops, so they brought two master artisans from Mexico City.
In Mexico, hand blown glass can result in any form or shape imaginable, from tequila shot glasses to highball, old fashion drinking glasses, and jumbo sized glasses. There are martini, wine and champagne glasses as well as beer goblets. Other shapes include pitchers, vases, ice buckets, snack bowls, salad bowls, fruit bowls, dessert cups and bowls, and more.
