If you’re using a piece of Janelle Patterson Art glassware as you’re reading this, finish your drink real quick and look at the bottom. There you’ll find Janelle’s signature and the piece’s year of creation.
Janelle does that because it truly is a piece of art – a functional piece of art, but art nonetheless.
Because of the quality, uniqueness, attention that goes into these – especially compared to everything else on the market – we expect them to become collectibles.
That’s why we’re issuing a Certificate of Authenticity for each individual piece moving forward (think Adoption Certificates for Cabbage Patch Dolls. Or having a rare beanie baby when they went crazy in the 90’s).
We’re also going to be numbering each piece, which means someone is going to get #1 for 2017 – and someone will get #100. And if things go according to plan, someone will get #1,000, and soon Janelle won’t be able to paint every piece herself. If things continue on the current pace, the window of time where Janelle will be able hand paint every piece will close soon.
And that changes the value of the originals when the art begins coming from the master’s workshop instead of from the master’s hand.
We can’t promise a future value, but we’d like to set the stage for that to happen.
And we’d like to make sure you, as an early supporter, benefit the most when Janelle Patterson Art glassware becomes the collectible we think they can.
Every new piece will have a Certificate of Authenticity included, as well as instructions for completing the certification.
Wondering where this puts your pre-2017 glassware?
Just go to the Authenticity page and add a Certificate of Authenticity to your cart. We’ll contact you to verify the number of pieces you purchased previously and get your certificates out to you.
To further reward you, we’re going to make sure that the lowest numbered pieces from each batch are sold direct (through Facebook or our website), instead of going to Amazon or other marketplace sites we sell through.
As always, let us know if you have any questions or thoughts (especially if you need a Pre-2017 Certificate of Authenticity) - we’d love to hear from you!
Thank you so much for your continued support!
Jay (and Janelle) Patterson
