Samuel Mendez
Senior Glass Blower
26 Years with Pairpoint
Year started at Pairpoint: 1988


With over a decade of expertise dedicated to Pairpoint’s historic glass presses, Samuel has worked with molds dating back to the beginning of Pairpoint’s 175 year history.

Thirteen years into his career Samuel moved to the bench where he trained under many of our respected Master Glassblowers.

Today Samuel divides his time between his own bench, and partnering with our other hot shop team to create larger and more complex pieces.

An essential part of Pairpoint’s glass choreography, Samuel’s fine embellishments on complex team projects bring pieces to the next level of sophistication and elegance.
