In 2002 my dad and I created the first square shaped brass press. We designed it, and then dad made it for me for Christmas! Showing beads I made with it in an online forum gallery catapulted us into Lampwork Tool Makers.
When we started selling it, we called it the pillow press. It was a square version of a lentil press. Since then we’ve created a Straight Sided version that is beautiful and feels so nice in the hand. Both styles of Pillow Press are on Sale today! $10.00 off each press, order as many sizes as you want! Discount: HipToBe
This is the press that started it all. The Christmas Gift my dad made for me 12 years ago!
The Pillow has been a fabulous canvas for the artwork of many artists over the years. Kim Neely of Bluff Road Art Glass really made the press shine with her ZooziiZoo Set, shortly after the press was released!
The Straight Sided Version is one of my all time favorite shapes! It’s so user friendly and the straight sides allows for beautiful bead holes, every time!
