1 Situated on a scenic peninsula surrounded by the waters of Narragansett Bay, the town of Bristol, Rhode Island is quintessential New England. The centuries-old locale is defined by a rich maritime history and the people who still work the sea and make their livelihoods from it. Here natural beauty endures with graceful strength. There is a long tradition of life on the islands and inlets of the great American Northeast. The handblown glassware of the Bristol Collection represents the intersection of water and sky found in these unique locales. Angular and sophisticated, the collection's divine proportions call to mind the Golden Ratio, a mysterious relationship between geometry and beauty, found in everything from the perfectly proportioned conch shells along the shores of Bristol to the hulls of wooden sailboats and yachts bobbing in the harbor. Nature's forms have been embraced and reinterpreted.
