Saturn wine glasses – by Christopher Yamane
In ‘saturn wine glasses‘, american art student christopher yamane of fragile studios adapts traditional glassblowing techniques towards the creation of an unspillable drinking glass. the rounded-bottomed, stemless piece features a handblown rim that serves as both fill line as well as a support frame for the glass, preventing it from spilling even when tipped over.
To create the pieces, yamane reappropriates a centuries-old italian glassblowing technique traditionally used
for the production of goblet lids. by folding a bubble of glass, trapping air within it, he creates the ‘saturn ring’
that circumferences the bowl.
