About Ciccotti Art Glass
Based in Ames, Iowa, Ciccotti Art Glass is a glassblowing shop that does specialty work for couples who are looking to give their wedding a special touch with a Glass Unity Ceremony.

Ciccotti Art Glass offers the supplies for Glass Unity Ceremonies in your wedding. In a Glass Unity Ceremony, the couple pours glass frit (small chips of colored glass) from two or more vials (sometimes couples have parents, children or others participate) into one container representing their unity and commitment to the marriage. Couples may choose up to five colors from a pallet of 16 colors that they feel represent their story, that match their home, or that they love. During the wedding, the participants pour the frit into one container showing the blending of their lives together into one beautiful relationship. After the wedding, the couple returns the frit to Art Ciccotti who makes it into a special sculpture or vase for the couple. The frit can also be used to make gifts for the wedding party or family members. Art also can make decorations for the wedding or reception. Some things that can be made for gifts or decorations are paperweights, small vases, blown hearts, round ornaments, flowers, and marbles. Arrangements can be made by visiting the studio or by email, phone, and mail.
