Robin Mix is my good friend and father of my twins, Tess and Ivy. He is also a brilliant glass designer. He lives and breathes glass. Sometimes I think he doesn’t think of anything else!
We met in Tunbridge 35 years ago. He still maintains his studio here in a beautiful brick Federal farmhouse overlooking the valley.
Needless to say, I have the foremost collection! Years ago, he would trade me a piece of glass for a haircut. Some of these early pieces are misshapen and small, but I love them and so do my girls.
As the years progressed, so did his talent and design capabilities. Honestly, there is no one that comes close to him. He produces every piece of glass alone and by hand. Each piece is one of a kind and a true collector’s item.
Robin’s work can be found, alongside other glass masters, in several museums, including the Corning Museum and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Design. His work has always been available through Barney’s, but starting in September, it will also be available through Anichini showrooms. View Robin’s work at RobinMix.com
