Alexis Bryer began blowing glass at end of 2007, just a few months after the birth of her daughter. In less than three years, she was supporting herself and her daughter solely off her glass art; her daughter’s father had passed away. She started Mama’s Glass, a name coined by her daughter who accompanied Alexis as she made her pipe deliveries: “This is my mama’s glass!” The name stuck.

Glass Artist of the Month

Alexis Bryer began blowing glass at end of 2007, just a few months after the birth of her daughter. In less than three years, she was supporting herself and her daughter solely off her glass art; her daughter’s father had passed away. She started Mama’s Glass, a name coined by her daughter who accompanied Alexis as she made her pipe deliveries: “This is my mama’s glass!” The name stuck.

The glass community, her “family,” has been hugely inspirational for Alexis and she gives special praise to Christina Cody and Tammy Ball, “who have always been there throughout my career to encourage me,” she says.

Alexis has entered a number of glass art competitions and placed several times. Best known for working with dichro (glass with layers of oxides or metals), she specializes in flowers and “girly glass.” To that end, in February, she started a “high fashion” line consisting of wearable waterpipes that attach to fashionable clothing.

“Glassblowing,” she says, “has given me the freedom to set my own schedule and spend as much time as possible with my daughter. She’s been the biggest motivation to never give up in this industry. Without my daughter, dogs, friends and family, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
