Annieglass at the Smithsonian
Smithsonian American Art Museum
Two pieces from the Annieglass Shells Collection, Coquina and Tiburon, can be found on permanent display in the Luce Foundation Collection of American Craft at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.
The Luce Foundation Collection opened in 2006 in the former patent office and adjacent to the National Portrait Gallery, and was intended as a study area for research into American contemporary craft and folk artists.
Frosted & Sandblasted
Coquina and Tiburon are made of frosted and sandblasted glass with a hand-painted 24K gold edge. Both are still in production at the Annieglass Studio in Watsonville and available for purchase in the company store, online or in over three hundred retailers nationwide. Every piece of Annieglass is hand-engraved on the back with the studio signature.
