Tulip Wine Glass Engraved - Clear
This chunky, tulip-shaped 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.
Approximate size: 16cm tall x 6cm diameter rim x 7cm diameter base.
