Set of six tumblers with a popular Mediterranean style and a colourful circle design. Artisanal blown glass. Made in Mallorca and each one is different and exclusive. The slight differences and irregularities in design and finish are part of the unique character and charm of the craftsmanship. No two pieces are alike. The set has one glass in each colour: blue, green, taupe, transparent, amethyst and turquoise.
The art of glassblowing in the Balearic Islands dates back to the 2nd century BCE. It is done by inserting an iron tube (the canya) into a mass of molten glass. The artist then blows into the opposite end of the tube to inflate the glass like a balloon. To work with the “balloon”, the artist rotates the tube in both directions and shapes it using wet newsprint, moulds and different instruments, and even freehand. When the piece is finished, it is separated from the tube. The puntill is what remains of that connection, and you can see it at the base of each object.
