I want to apologize to those who have contacted me about purchasing my holiday glass ornaments. Ornaments are the one product that I have continued to make in COE 96 but because of the announced closing of Spectrum and Uroboros Glass, I have decided to discontinue making the ornaments this year. I do plan to make them next year, but I will convert over to Bullseye Glass--I just didn't have time this year to switch over and get them made.
It has been an insane year for glass artists and we have all been effected by the decision to shutter much of the American Colored Glass manufacturers. I want to personally extend my gratitude to Bullseye Glass for hanging in there, not succumbing to taking the easy way out, and committing to making the process both clean and safe for their neighbors and employees. I am more proud than ever to say I use Bullseye Glass and that it is still made in America.
Look for my Bullseye Glass ornaments next year!
