Our favorite design piece last year, Glassybaby, is now opening a second shop in New York’s West Village just down the street from our favorite old pub the White Horse.
Glassybaby keeps it simple. Hand-blown glass votives that are nearly indestructible and come in a variety of colors and hues.
Glassybaby was born after Lee Rhodes, a mother of three, learned she had lung cancer in 1998. To relieve her husband’s stress, she bought him glass blowing lessons and he began to make votives, which she later started selling. Second is how great they look: they come in more than 300 deep colors, in a gently rounded form that enhances the appearance of the flame.
