Making it, as a glass artist, follows a similar path as many industries to make an overnight success. It's simple, really: spend ten years on the torch and you may have what it takes to be declared an "overnight" success. In a lot of ways that is what happened with Mobius Glass. The company founder, John (known as cIRclE to many in the glass community) began blowing glass in November, 1999, after initially pursuing a degree in music performance. Initially working out a small shop in the San Fernando Valley as an apprentice he fell in love with glass while also learning about real life.
cIRclE launched Mobius Glassworks in April of 2010, almost eleven years after picking up a torch, and almost immediately found that "overnight" success. With the dual core values of "innovation" and "perfection" John and his small hand-picked team of glass experts have now continued to impress and amaze for over seventeen years at this point. To absolutely no ones surprise John continues to enjoy his work creating unique functional art and still has a deft hand with the torch!
Perhaps best known for their intricate perc work, the Matrix is perhaps their most widely utilized creation. Using either a tube or puck of glass their technicians ensure that there are up to one hundred and sixty small holes for maximum diffusion around the entirety of the percolator. This perc is featured, to great effect, in many of their designs and allows the vapor-filled bubbles to rise and stack with minimal drag - Plus the vapor, or smoke, is incredibly filtered and smooth when it reaches the end user.
Helmed by someone with almost twenty years in the business, now, Mobius continues to evolve their incredibly stylistic scientific style. Known for respecting other blowers ideas this team is committed to always pushing the boundary in a new direction - not to simply reinvent or restyle someone else's design. It has been an absolute pleasure seeing and experiencing what this company has made over the last seventeen years, we wait in mute anticipation to see what new things lay in store over the next seventeen years.
