“We Search for Character, And Then Blend That with Function.”

Simon Pearce grew up in an Irish family of Artisans. At 16 he began as an apprentice in his father’s pottery studio. From there he went on to work with notable glassmakers all over Europe before opening his own studio. In the age of bigger, better, faster - Simon Pearce holds space for simple, quality artisanship. Each handcrafted piece is designed to last generations  and carries a story that lends meaning, authenticity, and grace to every use, every day.

Nestled within an idyllic Vermont state park, Townshend is a quaint Vermont locale with an old-world feel. Its namesake collection features a multidimensional crosshatch of vertical optical striations interwoven with horizontal lines of wrapped glass. The result is a plaidlike effect that feels so very New England.
