Javier and Efrén achieve a fabulous effect with the dynamic design of this set of six water glasses. Each glass is crafted with traditional blown glass techniques, in which artisans blow through a metal pipe while twirling it with one hand. They simultaneously shape the molten glass at the other end while expertly achieving a whirling effect in cobalt blue and white.
Because each piece is handmade, shape and size can vary slightly and tiny bubbles may appear within the glass. This exemplifies the hand-blown technique, making every piece a unique example of blown glass craftsmanship.

"Even better in person!"
These glasses are beautiful! I would definitely buy again, and I intend to purchase other products from this artist! The glasses are not only lovely, but they're heavy and feel sturdy, which is often times a rare combination in glassware. When an artisan truly takes pride in his or her work, it shows!
- Entertaining, daily use
