Hudson Beach Glass
John and Wendy Gilvey
Hudson Beach Glass was founded in 1987 by four glass artists: John and Wendy Gilvey, Michael Benzer and Jennifer Smith.
The artists hand cast glass using ancient processes to make functional and sculptural objects at their main studio, located in a renovated ice house in the Hudson Valley of New York state.
In 2003, they opened their gallery and glass blowing demonstration studio on Main Street in Beacon, New York, in a restored firehouse.
Since 2000 the Gilvey's son, Sean, has designed drinkware for the company. In 2008 Sean and his wife, Emily, opened a space in Philadelphia. This studio and gallery is in the heart of the historic district.
Hudson Beach Glass now contains recycled post consumer glass.
