We partner with Lorraine Austin at Snake Oil Glassworks out of Skaneateles, NY to create a few of our items. The rondels for our hanging glass and leather roundies are mouth blown by Lorraine. Scott recently visited her studio for a day of creating rondels, as well as glass blocks which are used for our bee block paper weights. Here are a few videos depicting the process that goes into creating these beautiful and one of a kind pieces.
