These stunning one-of-a-kind wine glasses contain actual silver and gold leaf, making them the perfect statement glasses for wine lovers, or the ideal gift for special occasions!
Gold or Silver leaf is layered onto a molten bubble of glass before it is blown out. The glass is then immersed in cold water, which creates thermal shock and starts to shatter the glass. The artist then quickly reheats the glass, sealing the cracks and ensuring the piece doesn't break. The resulting effect is a stunning, dramatic highly textured glass resembling ice.
This ancient technique requires impeccable timing, and the results are always unique making each of these wine glasses a truly original piece of art.
These glasses are the perfectly paired with our Precious Metals Wine Glasses.
Slight variations in shape and size are possible as each glass we make is hand crafted, adding to the unique charm of these pieces.
Handcrafted by artists in our Merrickville, Ontario studio using only the finest materials.
