Chapel Hill, NC
The founder, Mary, creates original art and hand-painted glassware on her family farm in Chapel Hill, NC, where they also keep chickens and a small orchard and vegetable garden. The glasses are entirely made in the USA. A painter her whole life, she is inspired by the beauty of the trees, flowers, birds, fish and mushrooms that surround her on the farm.
Giving Back: Mary enjoys giving back. She has volunteered her talents teaching glass and ceramic painting to artists in Haiti, as therapeutic outlets for cancer patients and their families and she offers free how-to tutorials on her blog and Facebook page. She enjoys sharing what she knows and thinks that "Life is better when you share what you have." We agree Mary Elizabeth!
