THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Cristaluc
Few artforms inspire as much awe at earth’s natural resources as handblowing glass. It takes a talented artisan to form the molten material into elegant, sculptural vessels. The city of Tonalá, in the Mexican state of Jalisco, is a handicraft hub specializing in pottery and glass.
Cristaluc is dedicated to preserving the glassblowing artform. Established in 2001, the organization currently employs more than 40 local artisans, providing a steady income and a supportive, inspiring space for them to practice their art. It takes 8-14 glassmakers working as a team to produce these stunning wine glasses.
My son's heart break...
My Son opened and loved the new sundae glasses... Until he came home from work with ice cream topping syrup and even sprinkles.. Only to be given a regular old bowl and told they are for the new Kitchen not changing one broken before they can shine in their new space.. He will love the sundaes tasted just as good but one has a piece of tape with his name.. That Glass has been claimed.. When they are ready, I am sure so will ice cream, syrup and spinkles and he can invite his friends.. They can break them in just right..as long as they are washed and put up where they will belong..
I love these so much they are beautiful and not thin glass but a thick well glass.
