Bring the same attention to the nose of your brandy or high-ABV beers that you do to your wine. An ideal way to savor the oaky sweetness of XO Cognac or the floral bitterness of craft-brewed double IPA, every swirl around the curvy bowl releases complex aromas that float beneath the tapered rim, delivering the heady aromas right to your olfactory. Our pulled-stem technique results in a thinner, more lightweight feel, while the substantial stem and base offer the grace and authenticity that is our signature.
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.
