"I love blown glass because of the pure imagination poured into every piece created...."
The artistry of Javier and Efren has been featured in periodicals ranging from Sunset magazine to the Miami Herald.
Since the 1990s, Javier Gutiérrez and Efrén Canteras have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. "This type of work is a beautiful craft. I love blown glass because of the pure imagination poured into every piece created," confides Efrén.
"Even though the art of blowing glass originally came to Mexico from Spain, and it is practiced all over the world, Mexico's blown glass artistry is unique," says Javier enthusiastically.
"I was 15 years old when I began blowing glass. Now I have the opportunity to teach the art of blowing hot glass to other young artisans. I start by employing people as my assistants, but I aim to train them to be experts, glass blowers equipped with a beautiful and useful skill.
Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efrén transforms the designs into a reality. "Efrén and I make a great team. Over the years we have worked hard to design truly original styles with a distinctly Mexican accent."
Javier and Efren work with lead-free, un-tempered and recycled glass, which is melted at very high temperatures. They use a long steel blowpipe to pick a glob of molten glass and, holding the pipe with one hand, they masterfully start shaping the desired piece by blowing through the other end of the pipe using tools with their free hand. They must work fast, while the molten glass is still hot, adding color and other desired effects.
When the piece is ready, they cut it off the pipe leaving a pontil on the bottom indicating the piece is mouth blown. It is placed in a tempering kiln for several hours and then left to cool.
Given the handcrafted nature of the process, there will never be two completely identical pieces. Air bubbles are often present as a result of this technique, adding to the admirable uniqueness of this legendary art form.
I was impressed with your vase. I gave it as a Christmas gift to my sister--she was WOWED by it. Keep up your beautiful work.
The items I purchased were simply stunning. They were even more beautiful than the pictures and came quickly. They were packaged well and the giftwraping was an added delight. Thank you, I will have the most beautiful table when I entertain because of your products.

Hi, Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the set of Rustic Puzzle glasses that I purchased from you. I love their unique texture, and the way that they feel in the hand - very solid and sturdy. Any chance you might make a pitcher to match? They arrived safe and sound after their long trip from Mexico to Massachusetts, well packaged, and with a pretty ribbon on top. Thank you so much.
We really love Efren's work. We have 2 sets of the cobalt blue rimmed Pilsner Glasses and 1 set of the matching water glasses. The quality is wonderful and Novica service is great, and their shipping fees are very fair. I love when they send me updates on my package location. We get lots of compliments on our glassware and always give Efren credit. Thank you, Rita and Dave in Cave Creek.
I just received the Cobalt drinking glasses, Can-Cun wine goblets, and Sangria Afternoon pitcher. They are delightful! Sturdy, beautiful. Thank you so much, Ashley
Love the aqua Pitcher and Aquamarine shot glasses - colors are vibrant and workmanship beautiful - Thank you for the fast service!
I just placed my fifth order with Novica just now and all five orders were for glass from Efren Cantreras. His art is always of the highest quality and of amazing skill. I thank you for this source for his work. -SM

The 3 vase set ""Amber Dance"" we received is beautiful. We love the way the light refracts through the glass. Beautiful, beautiful work!
I just received my set of 6 ""multicolor specks"" champagne flutes and I LOVE THEM. Beautiful!!! Thank you so much. They were very well packed and arrived in perfect condition and very quicky. I have already ordered additional glasses ""Pina Colada"" and look forward to future finds. You do beautiful work, Efren.
Long Beach, NY USA
I just received another order of beautiful handblown glasses made by Javier and Efren. These glasses are more like works of art than mere drinking vessels. I look forward to enjoying them for years to come. Thank you both for your efforts - we really appreciate your talents!
I have purchased several different sets of glasses, desert bowls and the ice bucket. Thank-you so much for such beautiful work. I love to place different pieces and combinations on my dinning table and watch as the setting sun plays artist in my glass. This glass truely changes the experience of the drink for me!
Thank you so much for the lovely hand blown wine glasses that just arrived yesterday! I drank wine tonight that just tasted so much better than from ordinary ones. Also the little angel that you enclosed is delightful and a lovely addition! Con mucho alegria y gracias, Peggy Taylor

both the wine and high ball glasses arrived yesterday and all are just beautiful. How wonderful to drink from vessels so skillfully made by such talanted hands. thank you so much for having this site, allowing one the oppertunity to have such wonderful works in my home.
Muchisimas gracias por esas copas tan bellas. Las estamos disfrutando, y el jugo sabe todavia mas sabroso!
Sometime ago i bought your amber flower vase, I forgot to leave feedback and just wanted to say thank you, it is one of my favorites, the flowers just fall right into place so easily! All the best, Michelle

I bought a dozen of the 'Cobalt Spiral' drinking glasses. The photographs on this website don't do the glasses justice. They are beautifully made, a comfortable weight in the hand and the spirals are a simple yet gorgeous decoration. They look quite striking.
I ordered and received some of the drinking glasses and couldn't be happier. They of are such high quality and definitely unique. Thank you!
I just received my blue spiral Tequila shot glasses, the picture on the site doesn't do them justice. THEY'RE GREAT!! I look forward to giving they to my husband as a gift and I look forward to purchasing the same style of water glasses.
I loved Javier & Efren's Drinking Glasses ""Solid"" so much, I tried to order more, but they're sold out! Please make more! They're gorgeous, well-made, and feel... well, solid. And kudos to Novica for negotiating international shipping fees that are far less than even what the US Postal Service would charge, but with all the proper packaging and tracking included.
I recently received the etched glass ""Crystal Flowers"" wine goblets, and they are truly gorgeous. I wonder if you would consider creating some sets of glasses that are shorter in overall height -- I would definitely be interested in some sets of 6 inches in height or around that measurement. I will keep checking back to see if you ever design some sets like that! Thank you so much for your beautiful work!
The etched wine glasses are magnificent, we really enjoy them. The artistic packaging they came in was a nice surprise as well.
I just received my beer glasses that were created by Javier and Efren. This is my second purchase from these talented artisans. As usual, the quality is first class and the rainbow spots in the glasses are beautiful. I will continue to support local artisans like them via Novica for years to come. Novica is not only assisting these artisans in getting their products exposed to the world, but also in supporting small local outifts that produce unique works of art. Thanks again, I am a customer for life!
The drinking glasses I ordered are just what I needed and are very beautiful!
There's something about Marguerita's being consumed from a real Mexican glass :-) The Scarlet Freeze glasses are enormous (excellent) and solidly made. They arrived well packaged and perfectly preserved. The glasses show signs of being hand made (bubbles and imperfections on and around the scarlet head); however, they are not a sign of poor quality but of authenticity. The imperfections are small and enhance the glasses. Where it matters the glasses work - the stems and base are perfectly balanced. These glasses can be left out on proud display when not being used, and filled to the brim when needed (they are large so not too many!!) These are indeed better than any of those ""cheap mexican imports"" you'll find at a big box store. These are pretty and the real deal. Very Satisfied and very happy
Huntingdon Valley, PA
I just received my set of ""liquid confetti"" glassware! What a fun, unique set of glassware! They will make me smile everytime I use them!
I received my liquid confetti tumblers and they are very unique and eye interesting. My compliments to both Javier and Efren.
Beautiful handmade glasses. Thank you for a wonderful & colorful addition to our home.
I bought the set of blown beer glasses for myself during the holiday season. I was delighted by the secure packaging, but even more so by the beauty of these glasses. The compliments I recieved were overflowing and I would deffinitely buy other items from this artist. Truly a wonderful artist.
I purchased a small and a large glass size set of ""Cobalt"" drinking glasses. They are so functional and pleasant to look at - I have to say they are the best drinking glasses I've ever purchased. Thanks, Senor Javier and Efren, for bringing artistic simplicity to everyday items. Most Sincerely,
I have now purchased two sets of drinking glasses and a set of the Pilsner glasses and I couldn't be happier! The glass is gorgeous and it never fail to get compliments and start conversations when company comes over. Thank you! I'll be back!
My drinking glasses are every bit as beautiful and well crafted as they looked on the website. I really like them and am glad I bought them.
I purchased the cobalt blue drinking glasses, goblets, and tumblers for my home. I LOVE the quality and artistic design that each glass has. They are definitely not store bought or machine manufactured! There are no two just a like. I am so pleased with them that I WILL BE BACK to shop for more items. Not only are we going to use them on a daily basis, they will definitely be something that gets past down and kept in the family for years to come! They are a work of art.
I ordered the liquid confetti glasses a while back - they are beautiful and the colors are bright and colorful. I love them! Many Thanks!!!
I purchased your amethyst goblets for a friend of mine, but I was so impressed with the quality of your work and the beauty of the pieces that I may very well purchase another set for myself! Thank you so much!!!
Gracias Javier & Efren por mis copas, son hermosas, parecen pequellas piezas de arte. Espero poder adquirir mas piezas pronto. Mil Gracias de nuevo y felicitaciones por tan hermoso trabajo.
I purchased the liquid confetti tumblers and am very happy to say that they have been made by a master craftsman! They are absolutely gorgeous! I will be giving them to my husband for Christmas. We will enjoy using them for many years to come!
I just received my ""lime freeze"" glasses..they feel great when held in the hand and are just sooooooo beautiful to look at. I imagine the indentations to be the thumbprints of the artists. Just wonderful! Many thanks,
Great wine glasses. Thanks!
I already have a collection of glasses from Javier and Efren but those glasses, the dark blue glasses are really special. They are beautiful and very well made. All our friends just love and demand that we serve beverages in those glasses only .... maybe we need to order more now;)
I love the Lime Freeze juice glasses with their unique indented sides. Never seen anything like them, they are gorgeous and one of a kind. I will continue to purchase from both of you.
I received my first order and am delighted so I ordered a pitcher and ice bucket to go along with the glasses. My decor is Native American-Mexican so your glassware is perfect! They are what I have been looking for for months-thank you.
Dear Javier and Efren, The hand-blown, hand-etched Aquamarine Flower glasses just arrived. They are, simply, THE most beautiful glasses I have ever seen!! They are also a pleasure to hold in the hand. My husband is just as amazed as I am by their beauty. Thank you both SO MUCH!! Katherine Donovan-Sherpa Charleston, South Carolina USA
I love the pitcher! It is perfect and such a beautiful piece! Not only will it be used a lot but when not filled with liquid on display! Thank you for the wonderful piece!
Elk Rapids/Michigan/ United States
Just ordered my items a few days ago...a set of 4 confetti style glasses. They have already been shipped and are set to arrive soon. I'm very excited as they're going to make a great gift. I've been looking for glasses that matched these colors. Very unique work that Javier and Efren do. I will definitely be looking to them for gifts in the future.
Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
The deep red blown glass goblets were beautifully crafted and have a good heft. They jazz up every dinner table and always get compliments from guests. Superb workmanship from two gifted artisans!
We've bought tumblers and water glasses from these artists. They are solid, well-crafted and a delight to hold. Whether they hold ice water in the summer or red wine in the winter, they suit our casual lifestyle and eclectic table setting. I highly recommend them to anyone who appreciates blown glass and wants something one can use every day.
Alpharretta, GA, USA
I have ordered several sets of glasses from Javier and Efren and have been absolutely delighted with each one. I often mix them in table settings with both Biot glassware and Danish crystal, and have been so pleased with the effect. The shimmering colors and beautifully handblown shapes provide a vibrant illumination to my table. I have yet to have a dinner party using the glasses without someone wanting to know where I was able to find them. My collection so far includes cobalt flutes, amber goblets and wine glasses, amethyst wine glasses and ruby wine and martini glasses that I use with different dinnerware patterns depending on the occasion. The ruby martini glasses were used to serve the first course for Christmas dinner this year, and were stunning! All of the glasses arrived beautifully packed, and it is sheer joy to unwrap each one. I look forward to continue to order more for my own use as well as gifts for others.
I was amazed at the quality of the 2 pitchers I ordered. I love them so much. They are nice and heavy and beautifully made. I am going to have a Sangria party just to show them off!
I bought the Cobalt Spiral highball glasses. They are beautifully made and very sturdy. :)
I ordered the Cobalt drinking glasses. Lovely!! I Am impressed. I will be ordering the Amber set. Sherrie
The green highball glasses are really works of art. Color so true and beautiful. Thanks Javier and Efren!
Efren, I have in my wish list several items that I have been saving up for but, many of them have been labeled as ""sold out"". When will you have these items back in stock and when they return will my wish list be updated? Thank you for making my home a more beautiful place to be! Sheilah Dickson
I recently received 6 margarita glasses and was very impressed with the quality of them. My hat goes off to the artist - the glasses were beautiful. I was also impressed with the packaging of the items - neatly and securely wrapped and no damage to any of them. We have traveled Mexico a few times and the Southwest extensively and I must say Artiest Canteras's margarita glasses are by far the finest. Thank you so very much.
We are absolutely thrilled with the sets of glasses produced by Sr. Canteras. Our order for (6) pilsner glasses and (6) margarita glasses arrived much more quickly than we'd expected, and was packaged with great care. Not a single glass was damaged in shipping. Each glass is slightly unique from the rest, a charming result of being handmade, though the cobalt color is consistant throughout the sets. We are very pleased with the quality of the product, not just the appearance but also the sturdiness and weight of each piece. We've enjoyed using and displaying the glasses, and look forward to taking them out on the patio for entertaining, once summer comes! They make us feel like we're vacationing in Mexico! Thank you, Sr. Canteras, for your excellent work.
Efren--we received your large amber wine glasses today and were so pleased with them that we have now placed an order for a set of the smaller amber wine glasses (5.5 inches). We'll use the larger glasses as goblets and the smaller ones for one. Very handsome work, sir!
Having already purchased your large wine glasses, the ones with the amber base and rim (which we use as goblets), today your small wine glasses (with the same trim) arrived. They are exactly what we wanted. Truly handsome, substantial, and a perfect glass from which to enjoy wine. Again, Senor, we thank you for your beautiful glassware!
Thank you Efren for the beautiful pitcher! It is exactly what I hoped it would be, except even more beautifully shaped and colored than I had imagined. An extra special surprise was that you gift wrapped the package. How lovely.
The gorgeous glassware arrived yesterday, well-packed, creatively wrapped in beautiful, colored tissue paper. Efren sent a picture of his glass-blowing, and a lovely postcard from Guadalajara with his greetings hand-written. It's a very personal touch from a true artist. The glasses are more exquisite than the photos show, and I look forward to seeing more of Efren's work.
I love the glasses made by Efren Canteras. They are striped with cobalt blue running down the glass like a candy cane. I want more!
I LOVE these glasses, they all arrived safely and in a beautifully wrapped box. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I ordered the 5-piece salad set for my husband for Father's Day (he is a great amateur chef) and it is fabulous! We then ordered a set of drinking glasses, and they arrived quickly and in perfect condition as well. Senor Canteras' work is sheer poetry by design, and I hope to collect much more of it!
His work is amazing. I was so happy with what I bought from him. Well shipped and loved the service I got. Thank you Efren.
I visited Mexico about 5 years ago. I purchased blown glasses while I was there. I just purchased the matching Pitcher from Efren Canteras and it is beautiful. It matched my glasses wonderfully and the quality is unbelievable. I absolutely love it and plan to order more!!!
I ordered the blown glass brandy snifters (set of 6) about 3 weeks ago from Mexico and received them a couple of days ago. They are absolutely beautiful and even more attractive than the photo on the Novica website!! I am very pleased! We plan to use them as wine glasses on our patio as they will not be prone to spillage as much as a standard wine glass would. Thank you so much - we will get many years of enjoyment from these beautiful glasses!
I just received my ""Green Undulations"" vase from Mr. Canteras. It is one of the most beautiful vases I've ever seen (and I collect vases). The quality of the workmanship was matched by the quality of the care that went into packing the vase. (Which was also one of the best packing jobs I've ever seen!). Also, the ribbons that were taped to the tissue paper on the vase really touched me. It was such a personal, kind touch --to me, it spoke volumes about the kind of people Mr. Canteras and his employees must be. Thank you.
After many years I have found the perfect, decorative table accessories to accompany a set of cobalt blue china I received as a high school graduation gift in '55--Sr. Canteras's cobalt-speckled tumblers and matching pitcher. What a stunning ensemble--especially since no one else I know has one that looks anything like it. Thanks so much for your excellent work, Sr. Canteras. I must also mention the aquamarine ""bag"" vase I ordered. The unique design alone puts it in the art glass category and I can't wait to set it out on a living room table holding my ""flower of the day."" You were so thoughtful to wrap it as a Christmas present--mine to myself this year.
I purchases a set of margarita glasses for my sister and her husband as a Christmas present. I recently received my order - and was aboslutely amazed. The work was incredible. As I was now jealous that my sister would have these beautiful glasses, my husband has since ordered a compelte cocktail set and a set of drinking glasses for me for Christmas. He is just as excited as I am to received our order. And he wants to get a china cabinet so that we can display our glasses. Efren Canteras is an amazing artist!! I am a huge fan! We plan to continue to acquire his glassware. (And I am sure that my sister will be just as pleased with their set; it is the perfect gift!)
Efren, You are a fabulous artist! Your glassware is beautiful in appearance and is of superior quality. I look forward to purchasing more of your work!
Very interested in finding glass blown extra-large margarita glasses. I like your products very much, please post more information. Your products are of the highest quality ""thank you!""
Just received my beautiful blue Martini glasses and I'm thrilled with them! They're so heavy and solid, perfect for Martinis, Margaritas, and desserts. Thank you!
Port Townsend,Wa USA
I couldn't be happier with my new glasses! They put my chain store specials to shame. These are top quality works of art that I love to use and display. Keep up the great work Novica and artists.
I am a collector of unusual and fine glass and crystal. I purchased the Canteras Salad bowl and received it within two weeks in perfect condition. I am extremely delighted with the bowl. It has met my full expectation as Mexican art glass. It will now serve as a centerpiece for my diningroom table. The service by Novica has been helpful and efficient. I will be sampling the works of other artists but will definitely be adding more Canteras pieces to my collection. Bravo! William T. Eldridge, Ft. White, FL.
I absolutely love the beer glasses. I am so happy to have found them, and to finally have them! Thank you so much, and I will definitely be purchasing more of your works in the future!!!
Thank you for the beautiful glasses, we love them!
The cobalt blue pitcher and glass set arrived safely and quickly. The set is absolutely beautiful, high quality work. The package was very well and beautifully packaged. Would definitely buy from Efren again. Thanks so much!
I bought a Salad bowl, or 'Tortoise' from this man. I am very pleased with the fine workmanship that went into shaping this bowl. It is a pleasant reminder of the genuine glass dishes that my Grandmother owns. Thank you so much for your great product!
Very nice product that exceeded my expectations. The glasses are well crafted and the price was right!
I purchased your cobalt blue pitcher and was just amazed by the depth of color and it's beauty.
I was so impressed with the beautiful glass Efren Canteras makes that I gave the Salad bowls and Serving bowls (such a lovely color) to three different couples for wedding gifts. I included a copy of the Efren Canteras biography with each gift. I did not need to specially wrap the boxes -as there was a charming bow and tissue paper covering inside the sturdy shipping box. I have also purchased several pitchers for myself-each is a work of art and a joy to use. I sent my mother a fruit bowl-tortise shell look (and had to order another to keep for myself!) She has always admired art glass-particularly northern-European abstract art glass- but has never felt she could afford the pieces she really liked. She LOVED the bowl and could not imagine how I could afford to import such a fantastic piece. When I explained how Novica worked, she was delighted. The piece sits on her dining room table-as a center piece. My mother is now a ""collector"" of the glass she has so long admired and no longer feels intimidated by the ""art-buying process"" thanks to Novica and Efren Canteras.
I have had his blue swirl drinking glasses for a couple of years and I love them. My sister liked them so much she ordered them for herself. I have also given his glassware as housewarming gifts. The colors are beautiful and the glasses are much more substantial than anything available in the stores.
I love your blue glasses and use them a lot. Please let people know they cannot go in the microwave, they crack, because of the bubbles.
Portland, Oregon, USA
Love the martini glasses, Dotted Blue and the Margarita glasses, 'Deep Blue' and the shot glasses, ""Cobalt Spiral'. They all arrived intact as they were very well packed. They look great and I will enjoy entertaining with such interesting and beautiful glasses.
Thanks! Your art is greatly appreciated by me and all my family. I bought beautiful Hi-ball Glasses and the weight of each glass is amazing. They are made sturdy and everyone comes in and chooses your glasses first from my cabinet to make a cool drink in. Of course, we mostly make ice water and iced tea but still the same we are enjoying your craft. Thank you again and keep up the great crafting.
West Hollywood, Ca. USA
I've purchased from this artist in the past and will continue to do so. I've purchased 3 sets of glasses, all beautiful, well packed, and even had enclosed a signed picture and thank you from Mr. Canteras. Doing business with Mr. Canteras and Novica is nothing but a pleasure.
Tallahassee, FL, USA
Wonderful, professional artist! Magnificent!
I love my wine glasses! Obvious the work of a master of the trade. The quality is excellent, the glasses are beautiful, graceful, and STURDY as well for a clumsy person like me. Like all my Novica purchases, they arrived in a timely manner, beautifully and securly packaged - and thank you for the post card! These will always have a proud place on our table.... and in my hand! Keep up the wonderful work and be well. : )
I received my margarita glasses sooner than I expected. They are absolutely beautiful!!! Much respect for the artist and his wonderful work.
Mill Valley, California, U.S.A.
The conical glasses just arrived and they are spectacular. Large enough to refresh and very refreshing in appearance!
Dear Javier and Efren, I have SO many of your beautiful glasses! Your gorgeous use of color and the fact that every one is lovingly handmade, so to speak, really creates an unbelievably lovely product. Thank you so very much for contributing to my home. Courtney/Philly
The Tall Cobalt Spiral Pitcher arrived at my door and I've just taken it out of the box. First I was in awe of the packing job for such a fragile item--but then I took the pitcher out of the box and am so amazed by the fact that I own such a beautiful piece of artwork! I am tempted to say such a beautiful hand-blown piece of art should never be used...that it should sit where it can be seen and admired--but I HAVE to use it! The pitcher is EXTREMELY sturdy and well-made. It is not light-weight, and will withstand many many years of use and enjoyment. It goes perfectly with Javier and Efren's incredibly beautiful cobalt glasses (which I have in the smaller and larger sizes) and will be the focal point of any table it is placed on. I am a fan of Javier and Efren's, for life! They are glass magicians, and I can feel their personal artistic touch in everything they make. MUCHAS GRACIAS to Javier and Efren!!! I'm proud and privileged to own pieces of your beautiful handmade artwork!
I received my crimson swirl wine glasses today and I am totally impressed with the quality and workmanship! So much heavier then any I have seen in stores. Each one is just slightly different so they do not look mass produced. Thank you so much for sharing your talent! Sandy....Richland, Wa

I purchased drinking glasses and I have been so very pleased with them. They are lovely and unique and of very high quality. I was a little concerned about even letting my family use them as I did not want them broken! However, I've learned that not only are they beautiful to look at, they are strong and practical. Thank you so much!
I bought a beautiful pitcher from Javier and Efren, it is functional and art at the same time- It's full of mojitos right now serving my guests, and they have all commented on how unique it is- thank you!!
Thank you very much for sending me the blown glasses. Many years ago I had visited the area of Mexico were the blown glass I saw were beautiful but, could not afford to buy it at the time. I feel that craft has been lost in areas of our world. Thank you for keeping it going.

Hello Javier and Efren! I ordered 3 sets of your ""Cobalt Dreams"" drinking glasses and they arrived in good time and perfect shape. Your work is beautiful, and each glass is an original with unique coloring and bubbles within the glass. Thank you for making my Thanksgiving dinner for 13 people memorable! I had such a good experience from this first order through Novica that I dipped back into the well for Christmas presents and also made a loan to one of Novica's artisans!
Your glasses have a wonderful feel and weight. I was looking for something to liven up the cupboard now that the children are grown and we can use beautiful glassware again. We have ""Deep Blue"", the little shot glasses with a handle--it's not easy finding glasses with handles. Also ""Scarlet Toast of Kings"" which are magnificently stately and tall. These are conversation pieces! So these same children are having twenty-first birthdays and graduations and I have ordered the amethyst martini glasses for them to mark their special occasions. I know that down through the years your handmade, unique glasses will bring many memories. Thank you!
I love my highball glasses. The whimsical blue spiral makes mealtime feel more festive, and it has the added benefit of making the sturdy glass easier to grasp.
I ordered the etched wine glasses ""Crystal Flowers"" set of 4. I was very happy with the quality and handmade artistry of the glasses. The wine glasses were a heavier glass. The etching on them are absolutely beautiful. I'm an admiring of hand blown glass work. I will definitely be a repeat customer with products like this.
I just love my new wine glasses from Mexico! They are perfect, with long stems and beautifully done scrollwork on the glass. They arrived in perfect condition, and were packed in a very strong box (I had been hesitant about ordering glasses) with no problem. They also are a nice substantial weight. Highly recommend!
Beautiful Wine Glasses!!! Thank you! Very different and special! Aloha, Kapena Kepano Tustin, Ca., USA
The cobalt pitcher is the most beautiful item I've ever purchased. I got it for a gift for someone but now I want to keep it. Thank you for such beauty and quality!
Fremont, CA, USA
I have purchased a number of glass pieces from Javier and Efren, and they are just gorgeous. My whole family loves them. They have also made great gifts. I've also travelled to Mexico where similar pieces are sold, but they don't even come close to the quality of this glassware.
I bought the cobalt glass pitcher. It is beautiful and substantial. I use it every week for tea or lemonade. I will buy a matching glass set soon.
I would like to say that I am ecstatic when my package arrived today knowing how beautiful the glasses looked in the picture and let me tell you, theyre even more impressive in person. The mastery of this art is very much present in Mr. Javier and Mr. Efren's work. My father is going to love them! Muchas gracias caballeros, no me decepcionaron. Excelente trabajo! Feliz Navidad a ustedes y sus familias.
I recently received my blue glass shot glasses and am SO HAPPY with them. The glass is so smooth and the color is gorgeous. I plan on more purchases in the future, especially from you. It means a lot that the items that I buy help other families. I am a new customer and am very pleased. I also love the cards that come with the artists items.
I have bought champagne flutes ""confetti"". They are very beautifull. I love them. Best regards Anne Nymand
The Emerald Spiral pitcher I received was beautiful! You can tell it was hand-crafted. Thanks for a great product!
I just received the 'Ice Blue' Blown Glass Pitcher. I am delighted with its practical elegance, and I am sure it will last many years. I can hardly wait to use it! Thank you, Javier and Efren!
My gift of glassware was so enjoyed. I was told that they were used at a gathering of friends everyone wanted to know we're they were made. So they pasted on the site.
I just received the lime globe wine glasses. I bought them for a wine rack so they are on display and they are just beautiful! Thanks so much.
I purchased the 2 of the 'Aquamarine' vases. They are absolutely perfect in every way (workmanship, height, color, style). The care that was taken to package them securely was exceptional and they arrived very quickly. Add me to the already-long list of Javier and Efren fans! :)
My glasses arrived today and I love them! They are beautiful and each one is slightly different than the other. It is a pleasure to drink out of them. My boyfriend came over and got himself a drink and came walking into my living room with one of my new glasses in his hand. He loves them, too. Thank you for the great service, protected delivery of my glasses and the artistry that it took to create them.
I love the craftmanship of every glass that I have purchased over the years. I've purchased wine glasses, tumblers and juice glasses which I've enjoyed and have had many compliments upon. Only thing missing from my collection is beer glasses. Unfortunately at this time the only set that is being made is blue rimmed. All my collection is in green, Looking forward to when the green rimmed will be available so I can add them to my cart and collection. Keep up the excellent work!!
Our Aqua Halo pitcher arrived today, and it’s even more beautiful than we had imagined.
We love our Cobalt Ring glass pitcher. We can’t wait to show it off!
My sapphire dessert goblets and aqua glass pitcher arrived today. They’re beautiful! I can’t wait to wrap them up for Christmas presents!
I just received the Carnival glasses and OMG!! these are the most beautiful glasses I've ever bought. I want to display them and not drink from them. The glasses are so well made and the rough pontil from the glass blowing process makes them so much more authentic. I can't wait to order another set. Love them and anyone who buys them will as well.
McDonough/ Ga/ USA
I am always stunning with your work and breathtaking. I placed my 7th order of beautiful hand blown glasses make by Javier and Efren. I always very impressed with your art work, I gave one of the order to my lovely Mother as a gift, she was absolutely floored at your beautiful glasses, looking forward to place several more order. Thank you for the lovely glasses.
Purchased set of glasses from Javier and Efren - every time we use them, we smile. They are beautiful and sturdy. Thanks!
I purchased the amethyst tumbler glasses, and they're beautiful. I love them!
I purchased the Conical Tortoise Shell glasses for a Mother’s Day gift, and they were really beautiful. My mother loved them!
I purchased the Blue Colbalt Spiral Wine Glasses and they are exquisite!! I love the fine detail of the blue swirls and the heavier feeling while holding the glass. I look forward to drinking my wine out of these beautiful glasses. Might I suggest making a similar matching wine decanter with a blue glass top? I would love to purchase that, too!!
I have purchased 12 of these glasses-6 at a time. They are truly beautiful, get lots of compliments, and I am proud that they are made by an artist who is fairly compensated. They add to any set table or make drinking something everyday a little more special!
Javier and Efren, your glassware is simply pdrfection! Having purchased a pitcher, Margarita glasses, DOF glasses, wine glasses and more in the Ruby Red, I can say they are beautiful, durable, unique and creative. I will keep coming back for more and have sent friends to your site through NOVICA as well. Please don't stop! Your work is amazing!
Beautiful, solid pieces of glasswork I'm proud to display. The sets always come extremely well packaged to avoid any damage during shipment.
Hello Javier and Efren, I just wanted you to know that I purchased your ""Emerald Angels"" glasses and the one word I would use to describe my glasses is that they are absolutely ""Stunning"" When you are using them, it almost seems that they are ""magical"", they are so beautiful. I had quite some time ago purchased your larger glasses that match these from a different company, but now that I know you are with Novica , I will continue to purchase items through their website. Thank you so very much and please continue to do your absolutely beautiful work. You are truly gifted! Thank you. T. Humphrey, Jamestown, CA
I have, over the last year, purchased ""Cobalt"" tumblers, juice glasses, and a beautiful pitcher. I can't explain how thrilled I am to receive and open the box and see what ""jewels"" I've ordered. I keep watching for the next ""Cobalt"" you've designed. Simple in design, but obviously expertly crafted, setting your standards so high. I can't wait for my next ""surprise"", to complete the glass wear I am using and admiring each day. Brilliant product, and always delivered safely and quickly. Thanks to you and Novica for bringing these artists to the forefront.
The Aqua Halo pitcher and Aqua Freeze glasses are beautiful! I am very, very pleased with them and look forward to ordering more of Javier and Efren's pieces.
I could not be happier with these glasses. Quality and artisanship ooze from them. They compare favorably with anything that can be found in an American brand name designer store like RH, C&B or W&S. But instead of paying some over inflated price to a corporation, I paid a fair price directly to the artist. Welcome to the new commerce people.
I purchased the ""lime twist"" pitcher for my sister for her birthday. It made it from Mexico, to South Carolina, in fine shape. She loved it. She is a collector of glass, and ceramic pieces, mostly vases, so when I saw this, I knew it was for her. Thank you for your beautiful work. I plan to buy more pieces. Linda Thompson, California
We are so happy with our beautiful new blue striped water goblets, wine glasses, tumblers and shot glasses. I have always wanted glassware like this and can't wait until we get a chance to show them off (although we are using them EVERY day)
We love the glasses guys! Gonna order wine goblets soon for a classy way to drink the vino å là Game of Thrones ;-)
I love my new drinking glasses! So beautiful in color, form, and weight. Thanks!

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST
Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.
Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.
Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.
Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.
Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.
Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.
