Fire and Light GlassFire & Light colored glassware is a product whose history is a kind of future, where age-old craftsmanship meets innovative manufacturing, utilizing post consumer glass as a resource.

But it’s the beauty that will get you, the twinkle of light on the surface of a watery blue bowl, and the knowledge that we get as much happiness out of making the colored glass bowl as you will from having it on your table.

DRESS YOUR TABLE WITH UNIQUE GLASS PLATTERS, PLATES, JUGS AND WATER BOTTLES. EACH PIECE IS FOOD SAFE AND MEANT TO BE ENJOYED. 

Blenko GlassLocated in Milton, WV Blenko Glass is an American institution and has been in business since 1893. For over 100 years Blenko has maintained and carry on the tradition of hand making glassware in America.

IT’S THE BEAUTY THAT WILL GET YOU, THE TWINKLE OF LIGHT ON THE SURFACE OF A WATERY BLUE BOWL, LAVENDER PLATTER, AQUA PLATE OR HONEY BOTTLE.
