Your average about us page has a list of reasons why you should shop from us and why we are better than the rest. Well that all sounds great but for you as a customer you cant just take our word for it. So the short version is we are just like you, we live in this culture and we love it. We get to work with the best type of customers and some amazing American glass artist from all over the world. Below we have some more info about our company but first here is a little info about the Brothers with Glass crew.
One of the founding brothers, grew up in Idaho and moved to Oregon in 2010 to start up Brothers with Glass with his older brother Jake. During the festival season you can find Jess following Dave Mathews Band, Phish, STS9, enjoying some of the finest musical experiences one can get in the great Pacific Northwest with his fiance', dogs and his 1982 VW Westfalia camper bus "Rusty". Frequents Hornings Hideout and local camp spots along the beach in the westie!
The other founding brother also grew up in Idaho and moved to Oregon in 2010. Likes to travel with the fam to non-touristy chill spots and experience the outdoors to the fullest. The West Coast is a playground! He camps, hikes, plays AirSoft and Bocci ball to get away from it all but he still enjoys all that Portland has to offer, you cant beat our food trucks for the munchies. Good times are to be had at concerts and some personal favorites include Echo Movement, Donavan Frankenreiter, Dirty Heads, Sublime with Rome and Northwest Sons. He also likes to dip Fritos in yogurt, (try it you'll thank me later)!
Jake's wife Phern is one of the friendly ladies you get to talk to on the phone and she is also makes sure you get your package on time! Phern also grew up in Idaho and moved to Oregon in 2010. When not working in the shop she spends time painting and working on other art. For a short while she was in the famous Portland Saturday Market selling her wares and some of her art makes it on the site from time to time as well. One of Phern's favorite places to go is Hornings Hideout just outside of Portland, with the relaxed vibe and crazy peacocks running everywhere is also a great spot for inspiration. She's currently has a section in the store Phern Glass which she bakes clay on glass pieces, check em out!
Jess's Fiance Shellie is one of the other friendly ladies that you get to talk to on the phone, she's super helpful and a lil' spicy! She makes sure our shipments are out on time and ensures you all get what you paid for! If she wasn't so organized we'd be in trouble. Shellie grew up in Michigan, lived in Idaho for a bit with Jess and moved to Oregon in 2010. She chills at the festivals with Jess, friends and like-minded festies. Also a huge fan of DMB. She's had her cat TJ for 11 years and his nickname is Captain White Boot (he has one white leg that looks like a pirate boot).
We also have a few animals in the crew. Bently, Millie, TJ (Captain White Boot), Rascal and Pluto that consist of a Britney Spaniel, a (regal) Beagle, Cat and the newest additions are our two Guinea Pigs!
