There arent too many products I swoon over that make my heart pitter patter, but Annieglass is one of them.
I was first introduced to locally made Annieglass back in the early ’90’s by a family member. When I say obsession, one would assume I have a collection like one has never seen. It’s actually quite the opposite. Annieglass is so uniquely beautiful and precious (and not to mention pricey), that I choose my pieces with great care. I display them, use them, and am always asked where I got them.
The following photo gallery is a sampling of the wide variety of products available. All images are from the Annieglass website.
According to the Annieglass website, when Annie is designing a new piece, she is often reluctant to name it. All too frequently, a cocktail tray is overlooked for what could be the perfect setting for a sandwich because it has been suggested for martinis.
“I strongly encourage you to be creative with Annieglass,” Annie says. “Every piece of Annieglass can be and should be used for a variety of objects. Ruffle cake stands make just as exquisite a resting place for dark chocolate velvet cakes as brie cheeses, and a salad plate makes a charming display for a bottle of wine, or a candle.”
I use my pieces in a variety of ways just as Annie has suggested. This platinum rimmed slab holds decorative wood balls.
Here’s my favorite piece I own:
Here’s a video of Annie talking about how she got started in the business and the process of making a piece.
With the telling of her story and her incredible artistry, I’m sold on Annieglass!! What’s your favorite Annieglass piece?
