Leprechaun Not Included

With a pot of gold at the bottom of your drink, the glass always feels half full. Hand blown by Patrick and Carrie Frost, these double old fashioned glasses are adorned with cascading rainbows and a pure copper pot of "gold" suspended in the base. The Frosts use a 16th century Venetian technique to stretch a 20-foot-long "cane" of each color, cut it into pieces, and fuse them to create the rainbow. Handmade in Mantua, Ohio.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Frost Glass Ltd. was founded by Carrie and Patrick Frost in 2012. The two met while working for a renowned artist from the Czech Republic at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina in the spring of 2009. The pair quickly became partners in life and business, and found that together they could share a creative vision for the future. In 2014, they moved their growing operation to Mantua, OH and were able to establish their own studio and workspace. Their combined creativity and passion for glass makes Frost Glass® one of the leading brands of contemporary luxury barware while maintaining a practice of hand-made tradition.

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Pot of Gold Glass qualified for the Collection:

Original Design

With a pot of gold in its base, this handblown design by Patrick and Carrie Frost is a reminder to always see the glass as half full. The Frosts use a 16th-century Venetian technique to stretch a 20-foot-long “cane” of each color, cut it into pieces, and fuse them to create the rainbow that swirls around the perimeter.

Responsible Business Practices

mission statement

Frost Glass provides a fresh take on a Medieval Art form. Bold and unusual patterns adorn each piece and are accompanied by a fine eye for detail, giving customers the experience of everyday luxury.


fair wage

Frost Glass does not currently have full-time, year-round employees, but as a policy start at $8.59, which falls within 10% of Portage County's living wage.

- Local (Ohio State) minimum wage: $8.10
- Federal minimum wage: $7.25
- Living wage of Portage County: $9.51


paid time off

The company does not have year-round, full time employees, but meets all our other criteria for responsible business practices.


recycling primary/secondary materials

Frost's primary material of lead free crystal colored glass can be reclaimed and re-melted to make sure there is minimal waste. Each piece of blown glass leaves a small amount on the blowing pipe, which cracks off into a barrel and is hand sorted to remove any impurities before re-use. Any of their extra scrap patterns are rich with color and are saved to be made into paperweights, marbles, or small pieces of jewelry.


charitable giving

Since moving to their new location in Mantua, Ohio in 2014 Frost has been active in their community, donating their time to help clean up the neighborhood and paint road markers on Make a Difference Day 2014 and 2015. Frost is a part of the DMRC, which is dedicated to the revitalization of the community and making Mantua a destination to visit. In 2015 they became trustees. Frost recently raised $1000 from 20% of their Holiday Open House sales to start a new fund with the DMRC. The Small Business Encouragement Fund will be a new asset to the community and provide local businesses with a financial boost to help with special projects. Frost donates their glass pieces to local silent auctions to raise money for causes important to them, such as farm animal rescue.

      Came as a surprise gift. Opened the box and was surprised. And pleased. Very creative, almost whimsical items. Beautiful and hefty to hold. But not too beautiful to use regularly.
