Cantel Blown Glass Artisans was started by fifteen artisans who had formerly worked together in a job that wore them down physically, intellectually and emotionally. But it also gave them the incentive to create something better. They saw the opportunity to produce handcrafted designs in blown glass by recycling glass. Taught by an expert blown glass artisan, they claim to have learned an infinity of things, some easily, others through errors. But they've always believed they can learn something from every experience, no matter how difficult.
