Terry Crider and his wife Donna, began creating glass art in 1976. They sold their first pieces at flea markets. Terry had a chemistry background and he worked to develop a special formula for iridizing some of his glass. He made unique paperweights with each piece being 100% hand made and his unique iridizing formula resulted in many one of a kind pieces.

Terry also used his knowledge of chemistry to create iridized pieces from crystal glass pieces already made by other glass makers. He would purchase these pieces, re-heat them, re-shape them and iridize them.

His pieces are marked by his signature, typically etched into the bottom of the piece. His work includes paperweights, toothpick holders, novelties and even marbles. Because he worked for himself in his own facility, he often went periods of time without making any items. So his work is not often found. He stopped making glass altogether in 2014.
