Chunky Recycled Wine Glass - Engraved

Regular price£17.00
/

This chunky recycled wine glass is handmade in a family run workshop in Mexico. Each piece of glass is hand blown from recycled glassware and shaped by hand and eye using techniques that date back a thousand years - and the fact that each one is a slightly different size and shape is part of their enduring charm! The glass is then engraved using a cutting wheel that etches a sunflower pattern, which is called a 'girasol'. The liveliness of the recycled glass captures the spirit and light spectrum of Mexico. We send the glasses wrapped in the Mexican newspaper they come in - a fun way of getting across the fact that they are made in Mexico!

Handmade glass can never be 'dishwasher proof' however it is usually pretty resistant to being put through a dishwasher. Dishwashers also tend, eventually, to dull the glass.

Sold singly. Matching short tumbler also available.

Approximate size: 17cm tall x 8cm diameter.


RECYCLED

This recycled glassware is made in a family-run workshop using Pepsi bottles and other discarded glass. The glass is melted down and then mouth blown, and the colour is added during this process.  Each piece is shaped by hand and eye using techniques that date back thousands of years. The trace of the maker is captured as the glass solidifies – small ripples and optical distortions are an integral part of the glassware. It is not for those who favour the symmetry of the production line. 

It is a myth that recycling glass uses more energy than it saves. Recycling two glass bottles saves the equivalent energy of boiling 5 cups of water - which seems a small saving until you take into account that 2.4 tonnes of glass end up in landfill per year.
