We are excited to announce the return of the Muggles Market, just in time for Valentine’s Day! This year’s theme is Muggles Market: Love and Plunder, combining our adoration of pirates and love. As usual, you have a wonderful opportunity to get to know our artists, writers, artisans, and entertainment through our Muggles Market Spotlights.
Krista Allison of Greenvine Glassworks is a returning artisan with our Muggles Markets. We asked them a few questions about their life, work, and what treasures they’ll be bringing to Muggles Market: Love and Plunder.
Please tell us all about the plunder you’ll be bringing to Muggles Market.
We make drinking glasses and mugs from recycled wine bottles with custom hand etching.
How did you get started making your glorious plunder?
I used to save my favorite wines bottles and wanted to find something useful to do with them. As I made a few, I tried my hand at etching a design with my Dremel.
What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?
I’m always excited to bring new designs from more fandoms.
What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?
Every glass is top rack dishwasher safe, since the designs are etched into the glass, they will never wash off.
What’s your favorite love or pirate story and why?
Princess Bride, because I’m a child of the 80’s.
They can accept preorders, in case you have something specific in mind. Email them at [email protected] or message them through Facebook.
