Giveaway: Hand Blown Glass Ornament by Avolie Glass

*Sorry about my technical difficulty.  The giveaway is now open.

 I have known Demi, one half of Avolie Glass, for a few years now.  When she first showed me their hand blown glass creations, I wanted two of everything I saw (and that is NOT an exaggeration).  In fact, they created all of the earrings my bridesmaids wore in my wedding.  I also have a few of their other pieces, including a beautiful lampwork necklace and a glass pumpkin.  Just recently, their work was featured on Giada at Home.  I could not be more excited for them.  These two work hard, and really deserve all of the success that is coming their way.  

When Demi mentioned doing a giveaway on my blog, I got excited. Their work is incredible, and I was happy for the chance to share it with you.  I choose this particular ornament because I felt it was a very versatile piece and would look beautiful on any tree.  Check out their Etsy site to see their other creations, including bowls, vases, and sculptures.  You might even find yourself inspired to do a little holiday shopping.  They are also throwing in a discount for my readers!


Here is a little bit more about the artists, taken from their website.  Avolie Glass is a man and woman team, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are both glass artists in their own right, exhibiting their sculptural work at places such as the The Oakland Museum of California, National Liberty Museum, San Jose City Hall, and the San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design.  They also share a personal relationship, and after years of creating their individual work, found themselves wanting a separate outlet for their whimsical side.  Soon the idea of working as a team to reinterpret the classics in functional glass art emerged. 


if you are a local buyer and  would like to make an appointment to see work at their studio for purchase, you can email them at avolieglass@yahoo.com

In addition to the giveaway, Avolie Glass is generously offering all Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies readers a discount in their Etsy shop with code GIFT15 at checkout for 15% off.  You can also mention this code via email for 15% off as well.  This offer is good through the duration of this giveaway.

PS: You asked me about St Nicolas..Well, it is celebrated on the 6th of December. If you were good through the year, you'll receive a small present from St. Nicolas. Usually, his presents are smaller than Santa's but we all love him!
