Simon Pearce

Simon Pearce

Simon Pearce is one of our most popular manufacturers.  Known for his simplicity of design and exceptional quality, you are sure to find the perfect gift – for yourself or others – in his large collection.

Simon Pearce Hand Blown Glass

Simon Pearce glass is made by trained artisans in USA.  While his headquarters are located in Vermont where glass and ceramics are made, the bulk of his glass is now produced in rural Maryland.

Using the highest quality materials, Simon Pearce glass is exceptionally clear.  The beauty of his designs is in their simplicity – casual, functional items which coordinate easily with nearly everything, and yet can stand alone as unique pieces of art.  Due to the nature of hand made products, pieces will vary slightly in size.  We find the most popular items to be his glass bowls, pitchers and vases, although he makes many stemware and barware patterns, as well as other functional serving pieces and decorative items including candleholders and collectibles.  During the holidays, his Vermont Evergreen Trees are beautiful, elegant and wildly popular.  Many of our customers add a new size each year to create a forest, and the LED light bases draw subtle attention to the display. 

Simon Pearce has several collections that have endured for decades:  Hartland, Woodbury, and Shelburne, to name a few.  Twice a year, Simon Pearce introduces new items, adding to his existing broad range of glassware.   

Simon Pearce glass products make wonderful gifts for any occasion - engagement, wedding, graduation, or promotion to name a few.  Almost all glass pieces can be personalized with initials, logos, messages - nearly anything you desire.  Email or give us a call for assistance to place an engraving order. 

Simon Pearce Dinnerware and Flatware

Simon Pearce is also known for his casual, everyday dinnerware patterns.  The first craft he learned was from his father, a well-known potter in Ireland.  Belmont is his most enduring collection of pottery, hand finished in Vermont.  Recently, stoneware designs manufactured in Portugal have been added and they offer great functionality as they are dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer safe.  His collection also includes several wonderful flatware patterns made in PRC.  We love the finishes available on his Woodbury flatware.   

Simon Pearce History

Simon Pearce studied glassblowing at the Royal College of Art in London, and spent his youth traveling throughout Europe working in various glass studios before opening his first shop in Kilkenny.  In 1981, he moved his operation to Vermont to escape European business constraints and the high cost of energy.  He purchased a former woolen mill and renovated it, using the hydroelectric power of the river on which it is located to run the furnaces.  His headquarters remains there today, and is a popular tourist destination to see glass blowing demonstrations or to have a wonderful meal in the adjacent restaurant.   He also has a facility in Maryland where most glass is blown today.  The artisans who create his products apprentice for 2-5 years learning the handcrafting techniques he brought from Europe.
