Founded in 2002 by Salime Harp Cruces, an engineer, and Christian Thornton, a glass artist, Xaquixe is a pioneering glassblowing studio tucked away in the hills of Oaxaca, one of the most economically marginalized states in Mexico. Combining innovative glass design with planet-friendly production practices, Xaquixe creates beautiful handblown glassware from locally-sourced bottles. From implementing glass collection and recycling systems with local restaurants and hotels to designing energy-efficient kilns using waste as biofuel, the studio’s holistic approach means that every step of the process is optimized to make a positive impact on the community and the environment.
