Process

Each piece has been given its texture and shape through pressing the molten glass against various surfaces, such as perforated metal or burnt wood, which gives a soft and subtly tactile surface. They are made from durable pyrex glass, which makes them heat and scratch resistant and suitable to put in the dishwasher or oven.
