This unique range of glassware is individually produced by independent makers and small workshops in Mexico. Each object is hand blown, using techniques that date back millennia, and the colourways echo the spicy, dynamic hues of rich Mexican culture. The objects are not made on the production line but made and judged with the human hand and eye; their making is not hurried and rushed, but marks a gentler passing of time. Each individual piece of the Malpaso Grande Collection reflects the character of the individual maker. Bubbles and minor imperfections are an intrinsic part of the glass that echoes the making process; a metaphorical handprint left on every object. These solid harlequin green wine glasses are a brilliant addition to any dining collection, and will last the test of time. Height 19cm
These design classics are superb gifts, fun for parties, and look great on display. Glass artisans carefully cut away the base, polish the edges and then bond a base to the bottom for a gloriously green, satisfyingly sturdy goblet. Recycling and reusing glass reduces the amount of rubbish that goes into landfill, and means that less sand has to be quarried, conserving our countryside and using less energy - Recycling one bottle saves enough energy to power a TV for an hour and a half. No acid etching is used, and because the bottle is not melted down these glasses are 90% more energy efficient than normal recycled glass Packaged in cardboard boxes of 2 glasses.
