The Boise Baren Company

The Boise Baren Company is a project designed by Tom Callos of We make glass barens for printmaking and printmakers, whether for wood block, lino or linocut, or any form of relief printing done by hand.

Barens for Printmaking, Made of Hand-Blown Glass, Each a Unique Work of Art

We make glass barens for printmaking and printmakers. See our ETSY store at We make each one by hand, and we make each one with a theme in mind —our latest being SPRING COLORS. Our next production run will contain all the colors of FALL, FYI.

We make 20 to 25 in a run —meaning we’re a small company, maybe even a “micro-company.” And that’s exactly how we want it. We like making hard to find items in very small quantities, for printmakers who can appreciate such a thing.

If you carve and print from wood or linoleum or plastic or what have you, our barens, big and small, work exactly how you want them to work —and they look absolutely beautiful.
