Handblown glass by artist Ted Jolda
The legendary party glass.
Blown by hand, the brilliant colours of these glasses delight the eye, and their unique, ergonomic forms feel secure and satisfying in the hand. The lip of each one is slightly thicker to help prevent chips, and their tough glass stays glossy and clear for everyday use, even in the dishwasher. Mix and match colours and find the palette that gives you joy.
Ted currently resides in Vancouver Island and is one of Canada’s best known glass artists. Ted has been blowing glass since 1985. Ted has received international recognition for his work. As well as being in the collections of the royal houses of the Netherlands and England, his work is also in the collections of the Canadian Craft Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass. His work has been exhibited internationally in numerous group shows representing the finest of contemporary Canadian Art and was also featured in Oprah’s magazine.
Among Ted’s signature pieces are his vibrant and unique drinking glasses. He originally designed them for a neighbour with severe arthritis who had trouble holding a regular glass.
