Since our humble beginnings operating out of the back of a hardware store in 1981, our company has been built on innovation and dedication to affordable garden décor. Little did we realize that we would one day become the world’s largest supplier of hand-blown glass gazing globes. Having introduced the hose guide to America among other innovative firsts, our history is a testament to the company’s pioneering spirit. Before the company started selling gazing globes we developed the first wrought iron stand to hold them back in 1993. This was novel to the industry at the time, as gazing globes had always been sold in conjunction with concrete or terracotta birdbath pedestals. This innovation opened the door to a realm of accessories and the introduction of new materials such as lightweight polystone, ceramic and wood.
In 2004 we launched the hugely successful line of Echo Valley® Illuminaries® – glow in the dark gazing globes, garden stakes, pot stickers and more. Patented luminescent crystals found within our glass accents set them apart from the crowd and make them unique. These crystals absorb light energy from the sun during the day and emit a soft green glow for hours after dusk. We have since taken this technology to the next level by combining it with metal and resin garden sculpture to create distinctly different product lines under the Illuminaries® umbrella.
