Jill Reynolds and Daniel Spitzer, a married glass-making couple, launched Malfatti Glass in Beacon, NY, after friends admired a wonky handblown glass that Jill made on a lark. In homage to the oddly formed drinking vessels they produce, the couple named their company Malfatti, which means “badly formed” in Italian.
