Featured Shop - Drew Jaeger Glass Artisan

by Sara of Auntie B Online

It's the time of year when everyone is out in the cold, bustling around the malls trying to get their Christmas shopping done.  I love this time of year, but bustling I do not love.  We're fortunate to have, at our fingertips, the wonderful site of Etsy.  Here at HandmadeMN we're all part of the Etsy family and are happy to present our wares in the comfort of your home by the warm glow of your computer screen.

But what happens when you don't even know what you're looking for?  What do you buy for the accomplished housewife?  The swanky bachelor?  The newly wedded couple?  The grandmother who has everything?  Drew Jaeger has the answer to your question. Glass. Beautiful, kiln-formed glass.  His work is perfect for anyone on your list.

Take a little trip to Drew's shop and soak up all the colorful, wonderful goodness he has to offer.  This one is makes me think of springtime with its bright green, or autumn with its dark red.  See what I mean?  This platter is so versatile it would be a great gift for anyone. 




This next one has a classy contemporary style with its rich blue color.  The cool line design even looks like a metropolitan skyline.




What could be more intriguing than this next platter?  The red and white are so vibrant giving a feeling of pent up angst.  Or of cracked winter ice.



Stop by Drew Jaeger-Glass Artisan and see what you can read into his creative platters.  You'll surely find the perfect message for someone on your gift list this holiday season.  Or even better, one for yourself.
