Have a Drink

Have that one room in your house that's thirsty for style? This glass and metal faucet will inspire double-takes with its lifelike flowing glass "water.” The piece was created by Gary Guydosh while training as a glassblower at Bowling Green State University. Over the next 19 years, he refined the design and created thousands of these sculptures in his Pittsburgh studio. 

Now, Glassblower Luke Adams and his team carry on the legacy of this unique design. Using a traditional solid-glass shaping technique and special steel tools, he forms the molten glass into a free-flowing water shape, and finishes the piece with a brass faucet. Handmade in Norwood, Massachusetts.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

The Glass Water Faucet was originally conceived by Gary Guydosh during his formal glassblowing training at Bowling Green State University. Over the next 19 years, Gary refined the design and created thousands of these sculptures in his studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was fortunate also to have studied with the Italian glass masters in Murano, Italy.

Gary's untimely passing would have deprived the world of his creation, but UncommonGoods has worked to preserve his technique and legacy. Though it is a different artist, the Glass Water Faucet still embodies Gary's design. Gary has said "Making the glass come to life is no easy task, but all of the difficulties vanish before the pleasure and emotion I feel when fire, which softens and moves forms, lets me reach the ideal dimension."

I have it on display in between plants in front of a window filled with some of the stained glass pieces I have made. The window is at the front of the house, in the kitchen. I myself look for " Uncommon" pieces to decorate with. I appreciate the work artists put into their craft.

Disappointed

Received this today and felt disappointed. Love the concept of this but the execution is not great. The water 'flow' is crooked, and the 'splash' is kind of rectangular looking, and small in size,not how real water would look. The faucet itself would not sit perpendicular, if you wanted to butt it up to a wall. Not great workmanship. I'll likely return it. 😢

Would NOT purchase again

The faucet is not level. The end at wall is crooked and not flush with wall, So the entire faucet is at a twenty degree angle.
