Glass Straws by Soul Flower Arts

    Beautiful and functional, these glass straws are absolutely one of my favorite things!  Both my son and I, drink either a smoothie or fresh juice every day using these really fun straws.  We no longer use plastic straws because after watching the documentary, bag it I came to realize that our lives are most definitely too "plastic."  One of the little ways I thought I could reduce the amount of plastic we use in our home was to get some pretty reusable glass straws that I have seen pictured in some fancy food blogs.  My first thought was to look on a website called Etsy, a place where people set up small businesses to buy and sell handmade or vintage items.  This website is one of my favorite places to shop for things that you won't find in a regular store, and it is also a great way to support artists. 

    After searching for "glass straws" I was so excited to find a shop called soulflowerarts (Soul Flower Arts).  I saw the straws that are pictured above and instantly fell in love with them.  Each glass straw is handmade by a very talented artist, with a technique called flameworking.  These beautiful straws make drinking your juice or smoothie so much more enjoyable and fun, especially for a 2 year old.  My son loves to pick out which straw he wants to use with his daily juice and makes sure to say hello to whichever creature is looking back at him.  I also love the larger straws (with the little creatures on them) for my smoothies because if you like to make thick smoothies you know how difficult it is to drink them through a little straw.  Jane, the artist and creator of Soul Flower Arts will take requests for custom items, and also sells the most beautiful glass pendants, ornaments, sculptures and unique gifts.  To order her straws or other works of art visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/soulflowerarts.

I have been through several posts "Glass Art" on this very subject but the satisfactory information that I found here is something that all other blogs are missing. I liked the way you put together everything, there is certainly no need to go any further to look for any additional information.
