From lighter-bodied Burgundy Pinots to the boldest Napa Cabs, put this red wine glass to the test. We worked with a few of our favorite California winemakers to help us create stemware to appeal to experienced wine tasters and lovers of handblown glass alike. The pulled-stem technique results in a thinner, more lightweight bowl, typical of a classic sommelier's glass. The substantial stem and base, as well as visible ripple lines from the glassblowing process, offer the grace and authenticity to each handcrafted glass 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.
