Flameworked Glass Business Card Holders

We just received the most beautiful business card holders. They will add such a touch of class to any desk. They are hand crafted by Kahlil Deerman of Boulder, Colorado. Kahlil uses flameworking techniques to make these card holders from a high strength glass called borosilicate often referred to as "pyrex". This type of glass adds durability and comes in a wide range of colors.

This is what Kahlil has to say about working with this type of glass, "I love the variety and intensity of the colors available in the boro-pallette, the clarity and compatibility of these colors is fascinating. I find that the color combinations are infinite, as I am continually finding new patterns and designs!"
