The pieces are free-blown from borosilicate - a heat resistant and durable glass, resulting in organic, unique pieces. Each piece is a one-off with its own unique form, and is heat and dishwasher proof.

These pieces are made using a complex Venetian technique called Incalmo. Made from 2 separate pieces, the glass segments are simultaneously blown to the same size and thickness before joining. Requiring expert control, each segment is required to fit perfectly.
