Annie Morhauser fell in love with the beauty of glass when she first saw it being blown by an artisan at the beach under a full moon over 30 years ago. She graduated from California College of the Arts with training in a range of glass techniques, but it was developing her own version of the ancient glass forming process, called slumping, in the '80s that marked the beginning of Annieglass.
Twice a year, Annie introduces new collections and extensions to existing ones. Inspirations are often Annie's interpretations of her surroundings—the fantastic natural beauty of the Monterey Bay region and Santa Cruz Mountains, travel, science or history. Her design process is ongoing, experimenting in new ways with materials and technologies, often blending time-honored handcraft with modern innovations, or inventing her own methods to create the beauty of Annieglass alongside her talented team of artisans.
