Winter roots wine glass set

 

Winter roots, handblown wine glass set

A set of textured glasses with winter root vegetable stems, pictured with a healthy drink of kale and spirulina. The textured form for these glasses uses winter kale from our garden, and the stems shown are: garlic, baby onion, parsnip, baby turnip, carrot and heritage carrot. The garlic and baby onion have roots that straggle down over the foot of the glass.

These glasses are approx. 20cm tall and hold approx. 150 ml of liquid.

As with all my work, these glass dishes are flameworked by hand using a gas-fired torch. They are individually worked and shaped, meaning that each one is slightly different and unique.
