A SPECIAL FEATURE AT BETTER EARTH is a remaining selection of beautiful hand-blown glass pieces from Columbus' local artist and icon Robert Eickholt.  Before closing his doors in 2008, Better Earth purchased a selection of last runs and salesman's samples of vases, paperweights and unusual pieces from the remaining works of Robert Eickholt's studio selections.  Better Earth is one of the last remaining retail establishments to have for sale a variety of Mr. Eickholt's final works before he became a "commission only" artisan.  Come in to see the quality workmanship.
