Meet the Artist

Esther Rodriguez

"The journey to establish a venture of our own has been very difficult and yet very rewarding, for when I add each experience up, I generate a great value to my life."

"I am determined to recuperate the interest that people once had for products made in Mexico so that our country may... become distinguished. That's why glass art caught my attention – it is a noble prime material with multicolored transparencies that are pleasing to the eye.

"I think of myself as someone who can be trusted to fulfill my responsibilities with anything that's been placed in my hands, and I persevere with whatever I set my mind to do.

"All of this began in 1998, when my husband and I were in Europe for an exhibition, and we came upon the design and tools to work with this noble material. We were so inspired that we decided we just had to learn about fused glass techniques. Enzo, an Italian artist, taught me. Of course one must already possess the ability to be creative in order to instill a more personal touch in one's design, and that is why I kept taking courses to perfect my skills.

"We use two types of glass, national and imported. Obtaining our prime material isn't difficult – that is set by the complexity of the design.

"Throughout this time we've come to learn that we can work with glass in a variety of ways, each beautiful piece capturing our imagination.

"My inspiration comes from my soul; it is an intangible aspect that is difficult to explain but it leads to creativity. What I enjoy most about working with glass – especially vitro-fusion - is the way the transparencies and colors interact with each other and create a unique piece.

"The journey to establish a venture of our own has been very difficult and yet very rewarding, for when I add each experience up, I generate a great value to my life. At work I can count on people who cut glass and craft my products. Each person is responsible for a specific job. I find it is important to delegate authority to each person in my team, because we share the same passion and interest for developing new techniques, abilities and skills regarding art glass. This depends on well founded values that result in a commitment to create a great working environment.

"We aim to generate more work for artisans in our community, as well as becoming a source of inspiration for others who specialize in the crafting of special products.

"Life is like a lightweight piece that can break at any given moment, just like glass. That is why each piece we craft bears with it a piece of our soul."

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
