Founded by Annie Morhauser, Annieglass offers a beautiful collection of handmade glass serving pieces and dinnerware. Annieglass's original tour de force was a piece called "Roman Antique," a plate of thick glass with a widely painted rim of pure gold. Today, it remains a bridal favorite at Sallie Home. Annie Morhauser fell in love with the beauty of glass when she first saw it being blown on the beach over 30 years ago. She graduated from the California College of the Arts with training in a range of glass techniques, but it was developing her own "slumping" process in the '80s that marked the beginning of Annieglass. In 2006 the Smithsonian American Art Museum honored Annieglass by selecting two sculptural pieces ("Tiburon" and "Coquina" from the Shell series) as part of its permanent collection.
