About the work

Heavy bottomed, with an angled edge to make the glass seem light on the table, and a tapered top to aim aromas up your nose. If you tip the glass, it’s weighted so it corrects itself—perfect for the 3rd or 4th whisky…

This form, though simple, has an important addition: its decorative blob trains the glassmaker’s assistant to gather (take glass from the furnace) using a small bit iron. This skill, central to assisting more complex forms, has to be learnt by repetition. Fast fingers, the right angle on the iron, attention on the glass and the glassmaker, are all skills that come into this little blob. Built into the design is the ability for this blob to be misshapen—it doesn’t matter if it’s the assistant’s first gather or they’re becoming a pro, all blobs are unique and beautiful, and making one is a step on the training journey.
