We carry the glass creations of world renowned British artisan Philip Grenyer. Philip hand blows all his delicate work in cranberry, green, blue and clear glass in 1:12 scale. In the world of hand blown miniature glass, Phil Grenyer is an exceptional talent. I first met Philip in 2009 at the dealer show in Aurora, Ohio. I remember his booth was almost completely sold out by the time I arrived but I placed and order and was delighted when my first shipment arrived. Opening one of Philip’s shipments is like being a kid in a candy shop once again.
Philip began his glass blowing career as an apprentice in Newcastle, Great Britain where he was producing laboratory and scientific glassware. He later went on to work in London and Switzerland extending his knowledge of glass and eventually returning to Newcastle. Today, Philip offers a wide range of miniature glassware in a variety of color choices, the most popular one being cranberry glass.
We carry all of the Grenyer designs we can get our hands on, which is currently 206 delightful pieces. Although he is known for his cranberry glass, the clear, frosted, green and blue glass pieces are equally delicate. Our latest shipment from Philip had the most beautiful translucent green glass which reminded me of depression green glass. These beautiful pieces do sell out quickly so if you see something that you fancy do not hesitate.
