Handmade glass art in Kauai, Hawaii

COLLECTIBLE GLASS ART FOR WHOLESALE CLIENTS

Your customers value handmade goods 

Now, you can offer them access to unique, handcrafted products through a wholesale partnership with Rosemary Glass.

Here’s a sampling of the unique products your customers will love:

 

Hand-blown glass pendents

These one of a kind pendents are made with glass (and sometimes beach sand!)

I gather a small amount of sand from the beach outside my glass studio in Kaua’i, Hawaii. Back in the studio, I fire up the torch to melt down enough clear and colored glass to fully encase the beach sand.

Necklaces are made by layering beach sand between clear and colored glass. This sand then becomes part of a unique work of wearable art!


Unique glass guitar picks

With a built in grip and smooth tapered end, guitar players will appreciate the bright, amplified tone of this special pick.

This durable, borosilicate glass guitar pick has gained popularity through the national catalog Uncommon Goods and the New York Times travel section.

The size of the pick is one inch. The grip is pressed into the glass during the torching process and makes a positive difference in the comfort you get playing this pick! The resulting sound has been most commonly called "warm and bright.”


Reusable glass straws

One glass straw can replace thousands of plastic straws. Plus, they’re BPA-free, durable, reusable, and easy to clean!

I make this straw as durable as possible by taking great care during the design stage, production process, and monitoring of the firing schedule of each kiln cycle.

Each straw is crafted with borosilicate tubing, the strongest glass commercially available. The ends are rolled and polished for smoothness and durability.

ABOUT THE PROCESS

Here’s a glimpse at the 4-step process I use to ensure the quality and craftsmanship of each of my wholesale products.

Step 1: Inspiration and Setting Up

Torch sculpture happens in many fluid motions that follow each other without pause until the piece of glass artwork is complete. The glass is always being spun, to stay centered and balanced.

Step 2: Crafting the Glass

There is a fine push and pull between my will and the intangible voice of the glass itself. Once the glass is white hot and liquid, I am the guide and gravity makes the rules.

Step 3: Into the Kiln

The glass piece is place in the oven (kiln). The kiln door remains closed until completely cooled down. The next morning the glass is colorful, vibrant, and ready to be handled.

Step 4: Into the World!

The guitar picks are hand tested for strength, the straws get paired with a cleaning brush, and the pendants are tied up on the very best match of a adjustable cord. Then, these beauties are ready to go!

I met Rosemary Pierro in 2007, I love the quality of the work and her outgoing professional attitude. Being selling her creative glass for 12 years now, clients do return to see what else is new, and acquired other pieces.
