We are proud to feature the sand-etched wine glasses and champagne flutes by Hawaii Craftsman Cynthia Francisco. Oahu glass designer Cynthia sand-etches her beautiful glasses in her Honolulu home. Born and raised in Hawaii, she is a 5th generation kama’aina with part-Hawaiian descent. Cynthia lived in Kauai for 20 years and was a teacher in the Hawaii public school system.
After moving to Honolulu, Cynthia began pursuing her passion of sand-etched glass. Cynthia is inspired by the flowers in her back yard. She draws all her floral designs based and is constantly tweaking the drawings because she believes “flowers are free-flowing and always changing.” Cynthia meticulously sand-etches her designs on glasses which are made in America by the Libbey company.
