My husband Duncan first saw the amazing glasswork art of Andre Nigoghossian at a local crafts fair here in Berkeley. Once I met Andre and was transported to his fragile, beautiful world, I knew there had to be a way to bring his work to Castle in the Air.
After a bit of dreaming and a lot of work, just a few days ago Andre came to the store and unpacked a menagerie of fabulous glass creatures, as well as a collection of delicate keys and acorns, also made using the same lampwork method.
We've posted most of the collection to the growing "Exclusive Treasures" section of our Online Shoppe. Have a look there, and come by the store if you're able to meet these beasts up close!
