Artisan Organization: Cristaluc - Gerardo Mendoza Pozos
Think of your new pitcher as a traveling centerpiece, its beautiful form creating a lovely scene wherever you set it down. Your pitcher’s form is also functional, its wide curves making it easy to hold and voluminous enough that you don’t have to keep refilling
Gerardo Mendoza Pozos is a young man of only 18 years of age, who has worked hard at perfecting his craft. In just 2 years, he has gone from a helper to an apprentice in the fine art of glass blowing. With the income generated from your Artisan Box purchase, Gerardo has helped his parents build a second floor in their home to allow for more room for his 5 other siblings!
During your Tea Party, you’ll quickly see Gerardo’s attention to detail and patience in crafting each pitcher. We invite you to touch, feel, and sense the unique qualities in each pitcher, as you sip new tea flavors, and other delicious samplers from around the globe.
"We live in an increasingly plastic-wrapped, bottled-up, grab-it-off-the-shelf-and-drink-it-while-you-drive sort of world. Serving your liquids from beautiful, hand-blown glass is a tiny but impressionable sensory experience that offsets the whirlwind of modernity. Such an act speaks directly to that very human desire for things to be slow, beautiful, and of the earth".
