From Me to You
Of all the things I love about my life at Glass Alchemy, my favorite is that I still get to be on the floor every day, making glass. Every pound of glass we sell is made here, from start to finish. That’s how it was when our parents started the company and we continue to work this way for a number of reasons, the most important being so we can ensure that we are making the highest-quality, most exciting glass in the industry.
Like any business that makes and sells things, we hear regularly from our customers asking what I’m working on next, and how they can get that color or some other color they have seen or heard about. I love talking to you guys - it makes my day to listen to someone tell me that they are using something that I made here in Portland. But when the call or text is from someone who is frustrated that they can’t get a certain color, I share that frustration.
While we continue to work to increase production, the fact is we are a small company committed to quality first - we might not ever be able to make enough glass for everyone, all the time. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t things we can do to help give our customers more regular access to our glass. That’s where the Glass Alchemy Rewards program comes in.
We launched the Rewards program as part of our effort to make buying Glass Alchemy glass more direct, convenient and easy. Becoming an Alchemy Insider is free and takes two minutes; from then on you will receive discounts when logged in on Classics and GA-OKs. Every one of your purchases will earn you points towards membership in the Glass Alchemy Makers Alliance (GAMA).
GAMA membership elevates the benefits that Alchemy Insiders enjoy, including providing early access to cutting edge colors and being a part of a group that includes some of the most prolific, acclaimed artists in the industry, a handful of whom are members of our Board of Directors.
We’ll have more about our Board, including thoughts from some of these incredible artists, starting next week. In the meantime, I hope you’ll sign up as an Alchemy Insider if you’ve not already. I’m heading back to the floor as soon as I hit send on this, excited and humbled to know that someone who is reading these words, will one day make something spectacular with what we are producing today.
Thanks for your continued support!
Peace - Thomas
