Power of Giving

glassybaby began in 2001, when Lee Rhodes dropped a candle into a colored glass votive after being sick from cancer. The calming light gave her peace, and a flicker of hope.

This hope helped her to heal, and inspired a mission and business devoted to providing the same hope and healing to people, animals, and the planet.

Our Values


The reason glassybaby exists is to give.


We are a community of kindness. Everyone is welcome. Just bring a story.

Downright Uplifting

Each votive with a motive is to lift spirits and spread hope.


Our hand-blown glass products are made from the earth, and we are committed to protecting it.

We Love Dogs

Dogs don’t judge, and neither do we, for goodness sake.
