How did you discover your talent for creating hand-blown glass, and what inspired you to start Estelle Colored Glass?

I fell in love with colored glass as a result of antiquing trips with my paternal grandmother, Estelle, who had a special day of the week when she visited her favorite shops.

Your career path evolved from being an attorney to starting your own business! What inspired this switch? 

As a mother, I wanted a career that would allow me more flexibility and time to be present for family life. 

Mestiza and Estelle Colored Glass both pull inspiration from the past – our grandmothers, vintage treasures, and more. Can you tell us about a special memory that you have with your grandmother, and how that has played into shaping Estelle Colored Glass?

During the summer months, I went weekly with my grandmother to some of her favorite spots and these experiences gave me a thrill for treasure hunting for unique pieces.

Your lookbooks are iconic and showcase your beautiful glassware! What is one tip you have for setting an epic tablescape?

Adding in one of a kind truly unique pieces that have special meaning whether vintage or family heirlooms.

What is your favorite drink to serve in your glasses?

Sparkling Cider.
