    ITEM#: 13693319

    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

    Six magnificent wine glasses by Javier and Efren capture the effect of tortoise shell. Each one shaped by hand, these blown glass goblets are a testimony to the artisans' creativity and skill.

    Product Features:
    • Number of pieces: Six
    • Material: Blown glass
    • Color: Brown
    • Dimensions: 7.1 inches high x 3.9 inches diameter
    • Volume capacity: 9 ounces
    • Care instructions: Dishwasher safe, top rack recommended

    Story Behind the Art:
    Since the 1990s, Javier and Efren have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. Even though the art of blowing glass originally came to Mexico from Spain, and it is practiced all over the world, Mexico's blown glass artistry is unique. Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efren transforms the designs into a reality. The artisan holds molten glass with one end of a steel pipe and blows through the other end. The glass is shaped by hand before it cools.

      I looked at these glasses for a while before i decided to order them. I just love the elegance and design of these glasses. They came packaged securely and each glass was individually wrapped. They look so sharp with my table settings and will sure make a great impression at our dinner party.

      I am an artist myself. A potter. And for me weigth, size and proportion are just as important as the beauty of the product. The wine glasses have the perfect amount of weight and they feel great! I will purchase again.

    • Stylish & Whimsical Tortoise Wine Glasses
      Verified Purchase

      Purchased these Novica wine glasses as a gift to compliment a Ralph Lauren salt and pepper shaker set and serving pieces that are chrome and tortoise. I was looking to offer the giftee a casual alternative to formal stemware when using the RL pieces and I thought this fit the bill nicely. The design and shape are very attractive and substainal, yet not bulky or chunky or difficult to hold. The stem itself is fairly thick and the goblet portion of the glass is obviously thicker than the average stemware wine glass ( more like the thickness of an everyday drinking glass or slightly more), but again not too chunky or cumbersome and the top of the glass is gently rounded and smoothed. For the most part the glasses are symetrical across the top. Only one glass in the set of 6 was slighty uneven. In my opinion they are well suited for a semi-formal affair as well as a casual affair and I would love to receive them as a gift as they are modern with the tortoise print yet still somewhat of a classic.
