Carafe & Tumbler Set is part of the Thames Glass Collection from Lulu Harrison. This unique glassware is made using local and waste materials sourced in and around the River Thames, including local river sands, wood ashes and waste quagga mussel shells sourced from Thames Water. The design behind these pieces is inspired by our precious water resource and communal sharing / drinking / eating.
Lulu is a Geo Alchemist Glass Artist and researcher in sustainable material development, she creates glass artefacts inspired by primitive glass making and with as little impact on the environment as possible. By combining crafts, design, and science, her work seeks to redefine the meaning of ‘luxury.’

From raw material to molten glass, Lulu is involved in every stage of the glass-making process. From sourcing the materials to working with glass blowers to create beautiful artefacts. There are several stages of sourcing and production that go into the making of Thames Glass.
Thames Glass is made using local river sands, wood ash, and waste quagga mussel shells sourced from Thames Water. Each of these materials contributes towards the basic chemical components needed within glassmaking.
Once processed by hand, the glass is melted, blown and shaped into the desired shapes working with skilled glassblowers, and then placed into the kiln to anneal.
