Simon Pearce is an Irish-American entrepreneur and prominent designer of glassware from Kilkenny, Ireland. His skills evolved in the early 1970’s while working and traveling through Europe and attending the Royal College of Art in London. His vision and inspiration was to create high quality, handmade products that are beautifully designed and intended for a lifetime of everyday use. Today, his reputation reflects his original vision, and 43 years later with manufacturing facilities in Vermont and Maryland, he is still designing and producing premium quality products using time-honored techniques. His business values and beliefs are that a sufficiency of fine quality is better than an excess of anything, and this is reflected in the care and attention that is given to each item Simon Pearce creates.
