Meet Anchor Bend Glassworks

What do you get when you combine three childhood friends; a collective passion for art, glass, and creation; and an inspiring Newport setting? Anchor Bend Glassworks. Childhood friends Michael Richardson, Justin Tarducci and Timothy Underwood are the founders of this magical storefront in Newport. Established in 2003, this innovative glass artist collaborative shines brightly on the Newport arts scene with its exquisite collection of hand blown glass sculptures, tableware, vases, bowls, and ornaments.

But Michael, Timothy, and Justin of Anchor Bend Glassworks aren’t just committed to their art; they’re also committed to the local Newport community and give back every chance they get. From purple pumpkins for the Epilepsy Foundation to graceful waves for Sail Newport, Anchor Bend Glassworks' astonishing work can be seen adding a touch of luxe and luster to events throughout the region.

A Magical Memento

We’re so proud of our reputation at The Chanler as a premier Newport hotel, and we work hard to cultivate an environment of attention, care and luxury -- with iconic Newport glamour, of course. When it came to customizing an original ornament for The Chanler, we could think of no better team to encapsulate these same feelings into a tangible object than the folks at Anchor Bend Glassworks. The result? A truly breathtaking holiday heirloom.

Available either through our special “A Chanler Christmas” getaway package or for separate purchase by contacting us directly, each ornament offers a radiant reminder of your visit to Newport and stay at The Chanler. Our customized ornaments have become an annual tradition, with guests purchasing them each and every year to add to their own personal collections. No two years are alike. To that end, tucked inside each box is a card that reads, “Exclusive hand blown glass ornament created specifically for The Chanler At Cliff Walk. Gentle opalescent white accents spiraled around soft red and violet ribbons. Designed by the Anchor Bend Glassworks and signed by the artist around the hook. The engraved gold plated tag is a memento of the grace and elegance offered during your time at The Chanler.”

For many people, a Christmas tree is much more than just a tree. Rather, each unique ornament hung on the tree speaks to a special occasion, event or memory. In adding The Chanler’s custom ornament from Anchor Bend Glassworks to your celebration this year, you add another priceless remembrance to the festivities. Our ornament is the perfect way to celebrate your favorite Chanler memory.
