THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Cristaluc

Country: Mexico

Few artforms will put you in as much awe at earth’s materials and their chemical processes as hand blown glass. What was once a hot and incoherent blob is now a cool and smooth new drinking vessel.

It takes a talented artisan indeed to form molten glass into elegant, coherent shapes. Many such artisans live in the city of Tonalá in the Mexican state of Jalisco, a handicraft hub, especially of pottery and glass.

Dedicated to preserving this artform, Cristaluc was established in 2001 and today employs 40 local artisans. The company provides its artisans a steady income and a supportive and inspiring space to practice their art. The process of making your new glass involved 8 to 14 glassmakers working as team.

Despite its hot and blob-like beginnings, we hope this vessel brings you (or your flowers) some cool, clarifying moments.
