The original multi-colour Nassau Cup. These tumblers vary wildly and each one is a pleasure to gaze at. Made by rolling random handfuls of re-purposed and recycled colourful bits onto molten glass, that is fused and formed into a cup and then iridized. Each cup will be entirely unique from the ones pictured and we can't guarantee that certain colours will or won't be present. It'll just be a pleasant surprise. 

Handblown glass in not dishwasher safe and is vulnerable to temperature extremes. Do not use with boiling liquids.

Using traditional methods first developed over 2000 years ago, Peter Gudrunas is a master glassblower working in an ancient art, forming contemporary glass that is prized for its classic beauty. At his studio near the shores of Lake Erie, he begins with raw materials such as powdered quartz and limestone, measures, mixes and refines them in a furnace powered at temperatures in excess of 2400 degrees Fahrenheit.

 One of the few glassblowers in North America to still make the majority of his glass from scratch, and working from an old handwritten recipe book, much of Peter's glass colours are unique to his practice, each piece is subtly different from the next.
