As we neared our 28th wedding anniversary, I asked my wife to look up the traditional gift. When she read 28 years is considered nothing special, we both laughed out loud. Kari had made a series of trophies some years ago and suggested we collaborate on a special series of “Loving Cups.” Loving cups are trophies with two handles. That was our only rule- that we keep the two handle rule. Having shared a work space, but not worked blowing glass together for many years— it has been a useful stress test. We have both concluded we have earned these trophies, and hope that they are embraced with the same spirit of whimsy and love with which we are approaching the series.
