Skilled men have endured a tremendous amount of heat to create the beautiful pieces of glassware displayed in our stores. Equipped with nothing more than their breath, a few rudimentary tools, and an unfettered imagination, glass artisans are able to create stunning works of art sure to make an ordinary occasion feel special.
Nothing enhances a wines flavors and aromas quite like hand-blown glassware. Most run-of-the-mill wine glasses and decanters are not designed to accentuate a wine's flavors and aromas. Serving wine out of a hand crafted glass adds a touch of grace and style to a dinner party with friends, a romantic candlelit dinner for two, or an evening alone with a good book. Imagine how impressed your friends and family will be when you hand them one of your exquisite hand-blown glasses, filled with wine poured from a beautifully designed decanter.
Finding affordable hand-blown glassware in the future is unlikely due to the fact that many skilled glass makers are retiring without apprentices to take their places. With few countries still practicing this centuries old tradition, the time will come when most of us will not be able to afford hand-blown glass.
Share the beauty of hand-blown glass with your friends and family while these one-of-a-kind treassures are still affordable.
