Lord Of The Rings

Why hide your rings in a box when you can display them as beautiful reminders of memories, promises or celebrations? This elegant glass ring stand hand blown by artist Shiloh Hunkapiller is luxuriously smooth and simple, except for the enchanting colorful bloom bursting at the base. Looking like a graceful sea anemone, it adds just the right amount of color and texture to this perfectly restrained piece. Handmade in California.

Shiloh Hunkapiller

Shiloh Hunkapiller is a borosilicate glass artist who uses lampworking techniques (the manipulation and blowing of glass with the use of a torch) to create glass art ranging from marbles to vessels. His artwork is simple in color and form, yet elegant. He uses only the finest American borosilicate glass and kiln anneals all finished pieces to remove stress within the glass.

Shiloh began his artistic career as a woodworker specializing in the building of bamboo fly rods. Over the years, he has also acquired a great appreciation for and interest in glass art. Therefore, when he had the opportunity to learn glass blowing from fellow lampworkers he took advantage of it. Shiloh studied the art for approximately two years. Finding that glass blowing came naturally, he chose to pursue it full-time. His prior experience building bamboo fly rods has helped him while lampworking--both require patience and close attention to detail and accuracy. Over time, Shiloh has taken the knowledge taught to him and begun to develop his own unique techniques and style. He is continuously experimenting and pushing both the glass and himself.

        Very nice looking, but is less colorful than in website pictures. I don't think that it is large enough to accommodate most women's full ring collection, but it is great for displaying a ring or just keeping everyday favorites organized to quickly grab and go.

                The bottom of the holder is so colorful and pretty, my mom wanted to display it upside down. So she put it into a bottle of wine.

                  The catalog picture makes this item look larger than it is, but I really like it. It's eyecatching and functional. I would definitely buy this for a bride as a gift ... or a friend. It's affordable and pretty to look at. I bought myself the multi-colored ring stand.

                    I bought this as a gift for my mother and she loved it. She places it on her nightstand in her bedroom. I'm back to buy another for my father, since he has been admiring hers so much. Came packaged very safe and secure, with prompt delivery. I think the price is good also. I didn't give it 5 stars cause I was disappointed with the flecks of color; namely, there aren't that many. It is not as colorful as the picture leads you to believe. Other than that, it was well received and everyone is happy.

                      I bought the blue ring stand for my mother and was disappointed with the color. I thought it would be darker but is more of a periwinkle and would have returned to get the red if I could have received in time to give as a gift. Other than that, it is a quality product.

                        A colleague told me about Uncommongoods.com and during my first visit I spotted a ring holder unlike several I've seen. I wasn't specifically looking for a ring holder the day I visited Uncommongoods.com, but after seeing it and seeing my wife's rings always on the bathroom counter, I thought it would make a great gift. This ring holder appealed to me and I knew it would appeal to my wife because we are both artists and like unique/not-your-ordinary gifts. I'm very happy I was told about the site and will continue to shop this site. THANKS!
