These dazzling one-of-a-kind pieces contain actual silver and gold leaf, making them the perfect statement pieces for wine lovers and an 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. This ancient technique requires impeccable timing, and the results are always unique making each of these wine glasses a truly original piece of art.
The resulting effect is a stunning, dramatic highly textured glass resembling ice with shimmering metallic inclusions. The final pieces strike a perfect balance of rugged texture and opulent elegance.
Slight variations in shape and size are possible as each piece we make is hand crafted, adding to the unique charm of these pieces.
Each piece we produce is hand blown by Michael Gray and Tobias Moriarty in our Merrickville, Ontario studio, using only the finest materials.
WARNING: No hot liquids!
