Hand-blown glass votives are the only thing for sale at this 5,700-square-foot studio/boutique in the Madrona neighborhood. Founder Lee Rhodes discovered glassblowing as a form of spiritual renewal in 2001, when she was battling a rare form of lung cancer. In 2003, she opened Glassybaby, naming it after the multipurpose vessel she had designed. Today, a team of 70 artisans craft 200 of these three-layer glassbaby daily in both opaque and translucent hues ranging from bright orange to white, and they can be used as tea-light holder, vase, or drinking cup.
