In 2010, Ben Belgrad won a hand-blown piece of glass in a raffle—and inspiration struck. He embarked on an apprenticeship with one of the artists of that piece, and developed a love for making his own glass art. Since then, Ben has carved out his own niche as an artist of handmade drinking glasses. In-between playing bass guitar for several different bands, he's bounced around the country honing his craft and working alongside some of the industry's most established artists. Through his company, Drinking Vessels, Ben adds his unique style to customers' glass collections with snazzy stemless glasses, Kiddush cups, and more.
