Our Nantucket Bowls are collectible in multiples or given singly as a gift. Each bowl is unique, handmade one at a time in our American studios, and they make ideal dessert bowls, a beautiful vase for seasonal bouquets, or displayed on its own as an art piece.
What makes a second? The heat of the room, the hum of the furnace, the weight of the tools... a glassblowing studio is itself a living, breathing thing, in which even the world’s most masterful craftspeople can expect variations in the work they create.
Unlike mass-produced design, handmade pieces yield divergent outcomes, owing to even the smallest differences in conditions. A change in breath, a flick of the wrist or a shift of foot can and will affect the final product.
Unique beauty lives in imperfection. Each Seconds piece captures a moment of the human hand at work, where unique conditions lead to slight variations and differences, preserved in glass. The quality and functionality aren’t inferior to firsts, but rather, a thoughtful option for those who value character and an organic quality to their household objects.
Seconds are priced 25% off the first quality price.
All sales are final on second quality glass and pottery.
