The Next Step: Aperitif Drink Set

The Next Step: Aperitif Drink Set

R & D is challenging!!

Bronze castings were produced from the original 3D prototypes. Now it’s time to create the glass components for the decanter, stopper, and 4 glasses. The challenge is to determine the proper heat ratio between bronze and blown glass, in order to prevent the glass from cracking during annealing, as has happened here.

First tries aren’t always successful, but everything is a learning process…stay tuned for the finished set! Special thanks to Lynn Read of Vitreluxe for his willingness to experiment.
