The shape of this wine decanter is based on ship carafes, in which a wide, stable base was preferred in order to prevent spillage aboard boats at sea. Brooklyn glassblower Andrew Hughes created these vessels exclusively for Kaufmann Mercantile based on a model he gifted to a friend. First, Andrew gathers glass from a furnace filled with molten material with his blowpipe. He then free-blows the decanter, manipulating the shape while continually reheating the piece in the glory hole – a gas-fired chamber that maintains a material's working malleability. Each piece is free-blown and therefore, completely unique.
Do not place in dishwasher. Hand wash to preserve the longevity of the piece.
Glassblower Andrew Hughes created these unique glass pieces especially for Kaufmann Mercantile. Armed with a degree in glass from Rhode Island School of Design, Andrew began his career as a sculptor’s assistant, finding time on the side to create glass pieces for himself and his friends. Orders started coming in. To keep up with the demand, he became a full-time glassblower and now works out of a studio in Brooklyn, New York.
