The uniqueness of hand blown glass cannot be compared to that of machineformedglass. The distinctive nature of the hand made process, which identify and magnify the uniqueness of eachpieceof glass will include where it is common to observe small air bubbles, lines or individual marks left by the craftsman!!!
Since 2002, Orbix Hot Glass has distinguished itself by its refined handmade glassware and its connections with those who appreciate clean designs, dependable service, and excellent quality in a small studio and gallery business.
For owners Cal and Christy Breed, Orbix emerged as an idea in the late 1990's, though it bore no name. For many years leading up to this point, Cal studied at schools around the country, gleaning as much knowledge and technique from some of the best in the world.Deciding where to plant a glass studio was not a difficult decision; Alabama was home, with all its charm and subtle graces.
As plans were lain, equipment was built, and property was sought, the reality became evident that it would take a lot of great people to make it a success. Though the task of opening and running an art business was and remains trying at times, the encounters with so many others provides joy and fascination.
Today, Orbix resides on 26 acres bordering Little River Canyon National Preserve, just a few miles from where Cal and Christy met and spent many days scaling the steep cliffs, or paddling the turbulent waters. Evidence of this landscape whispers through the Orbix collection, as it always remains a backdrop of the studio.
From one perspective, Orbix is about our personal paths along the way and its intersection with many others on their personal orbits. From another perspective its about the process of blowing glass and its constant requirement to never stop turning - always pushing forward. Those two things give meaning to Orbix and reflect two of our greatest passions - people and glass.
Today, we strive to make honest, excellent work that someone would invite into their life. Cal leads a team of glassblowers who hand-craft each piece with great attention to form, balance and color.
We hope that you would come to expect the same excellence in our service - impeccable, timely and personal. We are making one-at-a-time glassware for individuals who want one-at-a-time attention.
Glass art is what we were intended to do, and it would not be possible without those of you who appreciate it as well.
Thanks for inviting Orbix into your life. We are so glad that our paths crossed.
