Founded in 1971, Simon Pearce opened his first glassblowing workshop in Kilkenny, Ireland. He furthered his glassblowing experience working in European glass houses, traveling the world, and through studies at the Royal College of Art in London. From its inception, Simon's vision has been to create products that are beautifully designed, produced with premium quality materials, and time-honored techniques. His items are not those to be used only for special occasions. Simon’s intention is to create life beautiful lasting pieces for everyday use.
