Auburn University is honored to offer The Samford Hall Collection, a selection of one-of-a-kind Auburn merchandise and memorabilia created for the Auburn Family by the Auburn Family.
The Samford Hall Collection includes products that are created by artists with ties to the university. The initial merchandise in this collection includes an exclusive line of hand-blown glass from Orbix Hot Glass of Fort Payne, Ala., owned and operated by Auburn alumni Cal and Christy Breed.
The Orbix Hot Glass product line features pieces crafted exclusively for the Auburn University Family as items that can be collected, cherished and passed down for future generations. Among the items featured by Orbix is a limited-edition 2012 Auburn University Holiday Ornament.
Future items in the Samford Hall Collection will soon include exclusive posters, invitations and notecards designed by Auburn University's award-winning designers from the Office of Communications and Marketing.
Due to numerous requests for keepsake items from past events, photograph collections and promotions, the university hopes that making these items more broadly available and at very reasonable prices will be of great value to members of the Auburn Family.
Orbix Hot Glass is a family-run glassblowing studio and gallery located atop Lookout Mountain in Fort Payne, Ala. Artist Cal Breed, Auburn University alumnus, leads a team of glassblowers hand-crafting each piece with great attention given to form, balance, and color. Their goal is to make honest, excellent work that someone would welcome into their life. Glass art is what they were intended to do and it would not be possible without you inviting this piece into your home.
