Holiday 2014

Thank you so much for a wonderful 2014 - my 10th year in business!  I'll be working and shipping until the last minute, here is my shipping schedule:

For stock US orders hoping to be received before Christmas, please order before 12/18.  I will ship until 12/19 via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx for larger orders/platters, but that can take 2-4 days in transit once I pack and ship (shipping from just outside Chicago). 
Arrangements can be made for home/studio pickup from 12/15-12/19 in Oak Park, IL, please email me via the Contact link at the top.  I have shows in Chicago on 12/13-14 and 12/20 (see Events for details) for any last minute shopping needs (I'll be bringing limited stock, so please contact me if there's something special you'd like me to bring).

I will be out of the studio from 12/20-1/4, but answering emails every few days.  Orders placed during this time will ship after I return. 

Happy holidays and best wishes for a healthy & happy 2015!

about

My name is Laurie Freivogel and Kiku Handmade is my glass studio located just outside Chicago, Illinois. While I've been creating ever since I can remember, glass fusing is relatively new to me. My love of glass started when I bought a fused glass pendant at an art fair – it was the first time I had ever noticed fused glass. I was totally drawn in by the texture, the molten-liquid-turned-solid moment, the transparency of the vibrant turquoise balanced with the organic, opaque red inclusion.

Free Halloween Kitty pin with purchase!

I love Halloween, but sadly I no longer have time to decorate the yard with foam core tombs and scary skeletons.  I do have a handful of vintage decorations for the inside - skulls, cats and witches - and I have a good amount of Dia de los Muertos calaveras out all the ti
