"Every piece reflects the brushstrokes of its maker"

For over 25 years, Annie Morhauser has been designing award-winning glassware that is sold worldwide. Annieglass is handmade on California's central coast by a small group of highly skilled artisans and is noted for its beauty as well as its quality and strength. Every one-of-a-kind piece is proudly engraved with the studio signature.

Annieglass's trademark look and unique shape originates in a uniquely developed glass bending technique. A sheet of flat glass is melted over a ceramic mold and fired at such a high temperature (1350F) that precious metals (24-karot gold or genuine platinum) become permanently fused to the glass. The result differs from traditional hand blowing not only in its special translucent textured finish but also in its remarkable durability: the glass becomes tarnish and chip resistant – and dishwasher safe.

We are so pleased to welcome Annieglass back into the store.  Stop by to see our beautiful collection.  Great accent pieces for every table.

The Good Earth Pottery

New to Decatur and exclusive to Sam Frank & Moore 
"Richie Watts began his creative experimentations in the spring of 2000 to produce the unique dinner- ware known as The Good Earth Pottery. Success came in the fall of that same year with the pattern Mockingbird, introduced in 2001. Carlos Caballero then joined as a partner.
The Good Earth Pottery has expanded to become nationally renown. The dinnerware itself is stoneware of the highest quality and is safe for use in dishwashers, ovens, microwaves (reheating only), and freezers."

The Good Earth Pottery collection now consists of 35 patterns and over 75 unique pieces. A great line for brides of all ages and serving pieces that make a perfect gift for any occasion.

You have to see it in person to see the amazing artistry behind each unique piece.
