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.

Made in 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 think this product is so fun.. I get friends a family take a double look and take grab of it. :) I actually am a state certified water treatment and distribution operator and so this is like a piece of art work that i am oh so familiar with. In my industry this would be a great award to give out. I'm sure I will buy some more in the future :) kudos to the artist quality art work.

This sculture sits on the glass and when pushed against a wall, the spout fits flat against the wall. This creates an illusion of water flowing from the wall. The one I received was about a half inch crooked at the spout. I talked with Customer Service, he understood and would send a replacement out right away. 10 days later, with no communication from UG, I called. I was told that they had sent several e-mails and their position was just because it didn't look the way I thought it should look, didn't mean it was defective. I own one and gave one as a gift last year, both are fantastic. Although they offered of course to send me another one, I declined. CG needs to know the product they sell and back it up. I don't feel the need to spend shipping money or the hassle of sending defective products back and forth.

    The symbolization of moving water is great. It was the perfect gift for a City Christmas party. I would be lying if I said that I didn't almost keep it for myself.

        It is worthy of use as an award for special performance for water utility employees. Feels sturdy enough but I don't want to drop it to find out for sure.

          Cool looking piece. Like the faucet and down flow the best. The fake water at the bottom is a little odd looking. Not as fluid/clear.

              This gift was perfect for a water related gift for the General Manager of a Water utility. It's not often one finds the perfect gift for an occasion, but this was one of those rare moments.

                      We attached it to a 12x12 cypress post and hovers right above the outside redwood bar. It looks like it is flowing onto the bar.
