Sailor's Delight

Cast away the day by puckering up to a Sea Breeze or a Cape Cod cocktail in this charming nautical glass. Carrie and Patrick Frost expertly employ an 800-year old Venetian glass-blowing technique to craft waves of vivid blue into a molten rocks glass as it is being sculpted. The beautifully embellished copper anchor is cast into the deep sham of the glass, giving this artful design a coastal air. Handmade in Mantua, Ohio.

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

“Inspiration comes from all around: taking work out of the oven, surprise elements, nature, from within, and collaboration.”

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.

Learn more about the process and inspiration behind the Frosts' glass creations in an interview with the couple on our blog, or go behind the scenes and check out our Studio Tour!

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Anchors Aweigh Glass qualified for the Collection:

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.
