    Your Friends at Simon Pearce

    ******************************************************************

    Fire, air, strength, skill, and passion—these are the essential elements in making Simon Pearce glassware.

    Simon was raised on the coast of Ireland, where his parents inspired in him an appreciation of simple, well-designed, functional objects—beautiful things, contemporary in any time—that were made by the hands of designers and artists they knew.

    In the early 1970s, when glassware was mass-produced with uniform precision in large factories, Simon sought to renew the art of glassblowing and to make one-of-a-kind pieces where perfection comes from the uniqueness that can only be made with the human hand: glassware with soul that makes the food and drink you put in it look and taste better, designs that fit into any home.

    Today, a new generation of designers and glassblowers learns and furthers Simon’s vision of creating handmade glass using a combination of timeless artisanship and contemporary design. Every piece of glassware we blow carries the sign of its maker—the pontil mark softly rooted on the underside of the glass.
