The Romance of Simon Pearce

The Romance of Simon Pearce

Exceptionally brilliant yet intended for a lifetime of everyday use 

Simon Pearce Glassware – Designed and Crafted in the US

Stemware, serveware, barware, vases, frames, candle holders and more — using old world techniques, each Simon Pearce piece is individually handcrafted by master glassblowers. It takes up to 5 years to learn glassblowing and up to 10 years to become a master. Working in teams of 2, glassblowers gather a blob from a furnace than can get up to 4000 degrees. From the end of a blowing pipe, shapes begin either free form or in a wooden mold. All stems, handles and decorations are added and hand finished. Each artisan leaves his or her marks and nuances on the final creation making each piece one-of-a-kind.

Since its inception in the late 60’s, the clean design of Simon Pearce has allowed pieces to maintain their appeal for nearly 40 years. Some of their most popular initial designs remain today as best selling stems.

Their offering for May is a free option for monogramming on select pieces.

Personalizing these timeless designs make wonderful wedding, anniversary, birthday and Mother’s Day gifts. Only a select few dealers carry the Simon Pearce line and will be offering the free monogram.
