I’m always looking for unique gift ideas for hard-to-buy-for people. You know, the person who has everything already? Artisan glass is something that fascinates, especially when there is something unique about the glass. This is where J. Winterbower Glass Art comes in…
Joe Winterbower is the creator of fine lampwork marbles, paperweights, beads, pendants, and more! He works with molten glass at a blazingly hot torch in order to create gorgeous works of art that will have collectors of beautiful things drooling.
They carry various styles of beautiful glass pendants, beads,
My dad makes these, so I have to brag a bit. Isn’t he talented? I’m completely enamored with the tornado marbles and the flower marbles. I’ve seen everything he makes in real life and I can tell you that they are SO beyond gorgeous. Believe me, these photos don’t do the marbles justice. What you can’t really see from the photos of the vortex marbles is that you can look deep down into the vortex, far past where your mind knows the marble itself ends. It just keeps going and going, making for a fascinating optical illusion.
The flower marbles are my favorites, I think. Dad started a birthday tradition with my daughter, Emma, and makes a flower marble for her every year for her birthday. Emma will have a lovely collection of flowers encased in glass by the time she’s a teen, don’t you think?
All marbles come with a plastic stand and a crocheted “nest” at your request.
Deal Alert!Shipping is always free AND they do layaway!
