Cal and Christy Breed
Since 2002, Cal and Christy Breed has distinguished themselves by their refined handmade glassware and its connections with those who appreciate clean designs, dependable service, and excellent quality from a small studio.
Cal and Christy Breed ideas emerged in the late 1990's. 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 their studio 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 their works, as it always remains a backdrop of the studio.
Today, they 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,
