Karl Termini started the Termini Tubes Brand in the mid to late 2000's and he currently resides in Ithaca, New York. Karl began experimenting with molding and sculpting borosilicate glass on his own back in 1998, and moved to the Netherlands a few years later in a quest to absorb as much glass working knowledge as possible. While in Amsterdam, Karl started a school in an effort to teach others from around the world basic borosilicate skills. Although Karl enjoyed his time living and teaching abroad, he ultimately missed his home back in the United States. He moved to Ithaca, New York and began creating functional and scientific art under his new company - Termini Tubes. Karl continues to create exceptional, one of a kind smoke ware and takes pride in crafting each piece by hand.
