Atlas Mountains recycled glassware
£10.00 - £25.00
Hand or rather mouth blown vessels made of recycled glass in a small workshop amidst the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Quickly and perhaps crudely blown, these retain all the evidence of their making and whilst the workmanship might be a little rough, it is precise and cannot be said to be lacking in skill, nor the items either style or charm - this is handmade production ware intended for regular everyday use. The glasses are in three sizes, low glasses with a height of 6.5cm, tumblers of about 9cm, and highballs of just over 12cm all supplied in sets of four. There are two further sets - a whisky set comprising of two low glasses and 1 tall jug of about 12cm height, and a jug set consisting of one tall (12cm) and one low (6cm high) jug; and two single pieces - a straight sided 1 litre carafe about 19cm tall, and a wide low bowl of just under 18cm diameter.
