Annie Morhauser fell in love with the beauty of glass when she first saw it being blown on the beach over 30 years ago. She graduated from the California College of the Arts with training in a range of glass techniques, but it was developing her own “slumping” process back in the ‘80s that marked the beginning of Annieglass.
Annieglass’s original tour de force was a piece called “Roman Antique,” a plate of thick glass with a widely painted rim of pure gold, a spoof of traditional fine china. Annie took it to a trade show in 1983 and astounded the country’s leading retailers with this entirely new look in dinnerware—today, “Roman Antique” is an oft-imitated industry icon.
Annieglass is made in Santa Cruz, California and is avilable through Hanley-Wood in San Antonio and Corpus Christi, Texas.
