In the picture above, you’re looking at a handblown glass Boise Baren from the top —and it’s a magic whirl of colors and shapes. This one’s from our Spring and Summer series, where we sought to capture some of the wonderful colors we so appreciate when the cold weather finally leaves us. You can see what barens we have in stock by visiting our ETSY store at Each baren is different, either in subtle shapes and colors —or in a dramatically and unique way, like this one (also seen from the top):

We aren’t making our barens because they work great, which they do, we’re making them to celebrate beauty, creativity, and for the idea that it’s just plain fun to make extraordinarily handsome things. We make tools for printmaking from artists who like to make art —with art.
