These new tumblers from Jim Loewer Glassworks come in a choice of 4 solid colors and are adorned with a white random “caning” motif. Choose from Amber, Blue, Green, and Red, and indicate in the Special Instructions Box whether you would like a mix of colors or all in the same color. Price shown is for a pair, and the price per glass goes down on sets of 4, 6, 8 or 12. Because they are made of borosilicate glass (like Pyrex), they are are stonger and less likely to shatter than other glasses.
Dimensions: 4.25h x 2.5d (approx.)
About the Artisan: Jim Loewer of Philadelphia, PA, has been a glass artist and teacher for over 14 years. He makes both decorative and functional glass works such as his award-winning Water Drop Bowl, and various tumbler sets, vases, and lighting fixtures. All of Jim’s work is borosilicate (boro) glass, which is the glass used in Pyrex kitchenware. It is stronger and lighter than regular soft glass used in most windows, drinking glasses and art pieces. And unlike regular silicate glass, boro glass is resistant to temperature change because it does not expand and contract. In addition to creating visually stunning pieces, Jim loves to teach his trade to others, and regularly holds classes in his studio in North Philadelphia.
