JFR Glass: Antique Silver Drinkware
Antique Silver Drinkware
Austin Tx Artist
Bold, Brash, and Beautiful. You're past binds you, but it doesn't define you.
The brilliant metallic sheen is a result of colored glass. The color is added to the cup while it's hot, so it will not chip or peel.
JFR glassware offers unique, 100% hand-made glass. Utilizing both traditional and modern techniques, each piece is individually transformed from a molten glob into a functioning vessel. This millennia old craft process engages the senses and invigorates the soul.
