Anchor Bend Glassworks

Nothing makes me happier than the combining of some of my greatest loves, and these glorious aquatic-themed glass pieces by Anchor Bend Glassworks tick a lot of boxes for me. Best friends since childhood, glassblowers Michael Richardson, Justin Tarducci, and Tim Underwood create pieces that are gorgeously balanced and organic-feeling. And they’re not just talented – these guys are all about supporting their community. In addition to their numerous fundraising efforts, the Rhode Island navives host an annual open studio day, typically in early December, where visitors can watch glassblowing demonstrations and lectures, tour the studio, and even take a mini lesson while making their own ornament or paperweight, all for free!

You can follow the trio on their website, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And check out their YouTube channel, too!

  1. I love those little octopuses!

  2. Here’s a question for you Donna, my style guru, not counting the whole Mad Men influence, is it appropriate to fill the top bottle with expensive alcohol and keep it on a surface as a decanter?

  3. Really really like the ones white with the blue curlicues. Sadly the King and Queen of Clumsy know better than to attempt to own such fragile (and in our case, inevitably briefly ephemeral) things.

  4. These are great. I love how chunky and curvy the pieces are. I love the group of waves, the plump octopuses, and the fish bone.
