The ancient Aztec and Maya used a stone molcajete for grinding seeds and chiles. This Mexican version of the mortar and pestle is transformed into a spectacular bowl by Efrén. Standing on three legs, the amber bowl is crafted with Mexico's traditional blown glass techniques. The artisan blows through a metal pipe while twirling it with one hand and simultaneously shaping the molten glass at the other end of the tube.

Because each piece is handmade, shape and size can vary slightly and tiny bubbles may appear within the glass. This exemplifies the hand-blown technique, making every piece a unique example of blown glass craftsmanship.

Very sturdy glasswork. I have purchased over 10 items. Striking looks! Great for everyday use as well as party hosting. Darker colored glass holds up better to dishwasher. The clear juice glasses I bought with blue rims have developed streaks from acidic juices and dishwashing.


The glasses that I bought never fail to receive compliments.


I bought these glasses for my best friend and we all love them. I'm buying a different set from the same artists. Great quality and beauty!
