Henrietta Glass is owned by designer and glass blower Jill Henrietta Davis. In 1988, after experimenting with many different materials and art forms, she was exposed to the wonders of molten glass and immediately fell under its spell. Sixteen years, a BFA and an MFA later she remains as smitten as ever.
We feature four of Jill’s most popular products: The Christine Vase; The Mom Vase; Wine Stoppers and Little Birds. Each is offered in a variety of wonderful color combinations and packaged in its own box complete with a product information card. They make wonderful gifts, and a perfect memento of your Jekyll Island experience. As Jill describes her art “Glass can do things that would be impossible with any other material, and although the learning process is quite difficult, once you gain a little fluency, blowing glass is just plain fun.”
“I try to convey this fun by blending humor with
fine craftsmanship in all of my designs.”
Christine’s Vase: Jill Henrietta Davis gets inspiration for her glass from a number of places. The Christine Vase was created in honor of a friend who kept asking for a vase to hold just one flower, or two at the most. Handblown at Henrietta Glass in Rhode Island, the Christine Vase turns a friend’s wish into reality. Each piece comes packed in an individual gift box with a Henrietta Glass enclosure card. Between 6” & 7” tall.
Little Birds: Robins bring us glad tidings of Spring; Geese on the wing hint at Winter's approach; Storks carry babies, and the Phoenix rising brings hope. In nature, stories and art birds carry a myriad of messages and meanings. Henrietta’s Little Birds have wide ranging personalities so that everyone can find the perfect bird to carry their personal message. Each bird comes in its own box and a petite /story card with space for a special message . A Little Bird is the perfect treasure to take home from Jekyll – a very special island where we are surrounded by the beauty and depth of nature. Approximately 2” tall and 3” long.
Mom’s Little Vase: Some of the most beautiful flowers we may ever receive do not arrive in long glossy white boxes from the florist, but are instead offered to us by small hands grubby from play. The stems may be short, the blossoms drooping and the flowers themselves what some might call weeds - but when given with love a dandelion can be much more precious than the most perfect long-stemmed rose. This wonderful sentiment is on the enclosure card enclosed with each Mom's Little Vase. Available in a wide assortment of colors, the Mom’s vase is the perfect gift for anyone who just loves flowers. Approximately 3” tall.
Bottle Stopper: First presented in 2009, the Henrietta Glass wine stoppers continue to be a best-seller. Made from a single bubble, these stoppers are blown very smoothly and evenly so they are strong enough to stand up to frequent use. The black silicone gasket has graduated rings that allow the stoppers to fit a range of bottles. Each stopper comes packed in a gift box with an enclosure card with use and care information and makes a wonderful gift for any wine lover. Approximately 3 ¾” high.
