Black Market Glass

We first incorporated Black Market Glass in 2011 with a goal to create an affordable high quality production line of glass and quartz products.

Our small, family run facility is located in Portland, Oregon and focuses on delivering a product which retail customers will want to use daily and is strong enough to stand the test of time.

Our belief is that with great design deserves high quality materials. This effects a number of decisions that we make when purchasing our raw materials. By choosing Simax tubing and rod which is graded as being of scientific quality; this guarantees our products clear, straight, and strong. We use the same hexagonal bases used to produce some of the highest quality scientific lab ware out there. Plus, the six points of the hexagon help  maintain superior balance of each piece. Lastly we use SCHOTT-DURAN® bistable ground joints; These are thicker to help prevent chipping or cracking.

We source our American decals from a company that has been producing high quality decals for scientific glass blowers for over 50 years. The decals we use are made using small batch screen printing techniques to ensure quality assurance. They’re fired on at 1000 degrees and will not scratch, burn, or dissolve off.

The artwork for the decals were a collaborative project with coloring book artist and jewelry designer John Wik. They are reminiscent of the Art Deco time period of the 1920’s.

We carefully inspect each product before it reaches our customers to ensure that our products fall within our high quality of standards. This makes us proud to offer customer service only available when working directly with an American made product manufacturer.
