Brenda Griffith

Born and raised in Montana, Brenda Griffith forged a style based on the design elements of geometric terraces laced by natural flourish based on nearby Glacier Park. This shows through her stained, fused and slumped glass pieces. Next she lived in Chicago, which infused her work with a strong Art Nouveau influence.

"I apprenticed with a stained glass artist for two years starting in 1985," she recalls. "During my tenure with her I was introduced to glass fusing and slumping and that, as they say, was all she wrote." Stained glass requires hard work, vision, technique and skill, and in the case of glass fusing, a little luck to get the piece just right.

"I like to make plates, platters and bowls," she continues, "and I want the people who feel compelled to own them to also use them. To that end all of my pieces are food safe." Brenda lives in Atlanta. Her favorite film is Moonstruck.

      Aluminum is for 10 years and I wanted to get my friends something thoughtful but not too much. This was something small and special. Thank Uncommongoods!

      I gave this ornament as a gift to a friend in a Christmas ornament exchange; she loved it. I thought it was a little large, though, to use as a tree ornament.

          It'll go perfectly with the star, both are Mom's Christmas present. They'll look good on the tree or in a window.

          Brenda Griffith hand makes these heart ornaments in Atlanta, GA. Do they warm your heart?

          It is a pretty gift, but a bit pricy

          I like the look of these, but the price is just too high.

          Fun and lovely, but I could probably make it for less.

          I LOVE the heart one as much as the star. They should come in a set- one of each...

          Love this ornament. I love the shape of hearts and purchase interesting items whenever I can.

          love that you can get different sone colors - again, would love to see pricing around the $10 mark

          $18 is too much. It's maybe $10 in materials and easily homemade.

          Its cute but my wife can make it so I would not buy one. Some people will love this as a gift. Good to buy for a girl (hint guys)

          I lost my mom around Christmastime, and I think this would be perfect for our tree. To always think about her.

          Brilliantly simplistic - perhaps a few dollars too high.

          same idea as the star design..childlike creation or something one can make themself.

          Betty

          Neat ornament...but could be made for much less.

          It's lovely, but it seems large and the price is a bit high. If it were smaller and the price lowered, I'd be buying these to attach to Christmas gifts.

          $12 i would buy it, $18 is a bit steep

          I love the idea of this design... I just don't like the actual design here.

          Cute, again though, 90 seconds to make and cost about 50 cents.

          Cute, but I've seen it before. A little bit on the expensive side.
