GeekGlassware LLC is official!

Yay, I filed for an LLC. That makes me a CEO. Kind of cool I guess. I don’t feel any different, am I supposed to be getting a package in the mail that teaches me how to be a jerk, or will that just happen over time? ha ha, just kidding.

Seriously, though: Geekglassware.com is also now live, and so is the Etsy page, facebook page, and twitter account. Also made the subreddit for a small nest of future planning that I’ve got in mind with the help from my best CEO-friend, Samir Balwani (he owns and runs SiteFox.com. I traded him tech support for advice and all that 🙂

The homepage for geekglassware is just a landing page, takes you directly to my Etsy account (which I am both proud and sad to say is nearly sold out of inventory). More glasses coming soon!


renderDragon Glass (For Akshay!)

  • Aperture: ƒ/4
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • Taken: 15 April, 2012
  • Focal length: 50mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 1/30s

I decided to make some glasses for my brother. He co-owns and operates a relatively new game development company, renderDragon. I made this pair of glasses for him with some help. Also, my first experiment into depth and layering the sand blasting. I’m happy with how it came out 🙂


Firefly Glass!

Serenity Firefly, not the bug firefly.

  • Aperture: ƒ/1.8
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • Taken: 17 April, 2012
  • Focal length: 50mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 1/10s




Here’s the glass in a clearer, less artsy picture. It’s a bit big, so I had to take two photos. The etching process lends itself to a loss of some detail, which I’m working on improving but it’s still producing some fantastic results. I’m happy with it 🙂



More glass work on the way. Here’s some random ones

Just a teaser, I’ve made a Firefly (Serenity) glass, and another glass as a surprise gift for someone, which will be posted here after I give it to him/her (vagueness!)

Here were some templates I recently used (I totally forgot to take pictures of the actual glass after it was done)

This is a VOTIVE, not a shot glass. Was done as a sample request for a friend-of-a-friend kind of thing.

Those tiny holes are really tough to keep on under the massive pressure of a sand blaster.


Firefly template I used for a glass (Man those intricate lines are TOUGH!)


And of course, the glass we made (also banner) for team Andrew+Joe (two of my best BESTEST friends)
