Jim Loewer Jim Loewer

Jim Loewer initially considered paint his primary medium. But as a casual interest in glass art grew more serious, he swapped his brushes for a kiln and devoted himself to glassblowing full time. Today, Jim’s handcrafted glass housewares can be found in such outlets as Anthropologie, Uncommon Goods, and Barney’s New York, where his bowls were praised by the New York Times for their “eye-popping” impact and their “intense swirling colors.”
