Is anyone familiar with any Glass Blowing Studios in Guadalajara?  I am
planning a trip to gather pictures on the Mexican glass blowing process
to add to my website at http://www.mivaso.com and want to make sure I
see the best that Mexico has to offer...

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Just curious, but wouldn't this be something to do BEFORE you start
overpricing it to US on a newsgroup that discusses the techniques  and
"craft" of glass rather than everyone here selling their items?

Did you lose the concept here that EVERYONE works with the glass, and yet
you don't see ANYONE trying to sell their wares?

When you get to Mexico, see if "glassblowing" is in the yellow pages..... ya
think?




Re: Glass Blowing Studios in Guadalajara
They don't seem all that overpriced to me... they're about the same
prices as I see them for at all the local import shops. They're
certainly not "art glass" though.

Ever buy anything "in" Mexico?  Bring across the border for peanuts, the
standard of living and expense of things in general, is far cheaper, those
are retail prices, straight up zero discount.  If I am buying something
direct from the importer, I expect a better price than offered on the
website, AND I don't expect the sales pitch, or any derivation of it,  to be
posted in the newsgroup.

Oh, I agree... they're retail prices, and the ad is at the least, wasted
and at the most, intrusive on this group.

Overpriced for wholesale... but my impression is that she's trying to
sell them retail. She's still barking up th wrong tree here.

I am just trying to see if you guys are aware of any of the artisans in
Mexico that I should visit while I am there...

Thanks,

Re: Glass Blowing Studios in Guadalajara
I don't know any who have open studios, or who sell that sort of wares.
You might try posting the question to the glass forum on Wetcanvas, though.

Re: Glass Blowing Studios in Guadalajara
we get enough cheap import crap from Mexico now, how about American
artists??
. you come on here and want to sell you imports to Americans, but buy in
Mexico. why
sell your stuff to Mexicans, save freight.

they got no money cause they let their country become a shithole.  so don't
assist this country becoming a shithole.

Re: Glass Blowing Studios in Guadalajara
I can walk down the streets in the suburbs of Guadalajara known for
glass blowing, like Tlaquepaque or Tonala and find lots of shops making
and selling glassware.  I was wondering if anyone here knew of any true
glass blowing artisans in the area.  I really want to capture some of
the essence of the age old art of glassblowing in Mexico - they were
suposedly some of the first on the North American continent to produce
glass...

I have visited the Vitro plant in Monterrey where Dale Chihuly worked
on his Mexico show but have yet to make any contacts in Guadalajara.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
