HEAVY BOTTOM COLLECTION
SOLD OUT IN 2 WEEKS
Since our start in 2015 we have fallen deeply in love with our pint and tumbler glasses. We love the way the light refracts in the glass highlighting the mountain in our favorite craft beers and spirits. Striving for a new perspective we decided it was time to try something different, and heavier. The result is a new Heavy Bottom Tumbler with an unobstructed view of each mountain built for those who also want a little more weight to their glass. Our standard Tumbler glass weighs in at about 1/4 lb, this very limited edition collection weighs in at nearly 1 lb per glass.
This Heavy Bottom collection features about 1 in of solid glass in the base encapsulating our signature peaks and magnifying the mountain experience. The process to make each of these glasses offers some beautiful hand made variation. The imperfections of these heavy glasses invoke the spirit of the Japanese term "wabi-sabi" which is the art of finding beauty in imperfection. Every Heavy Bottom glass we make is truly one of a kind. We love this essay about wabi-sabi as an overview of the concept. Similar to how the clouds cascade over a peak, the swirl of the glass over the mountains creates a truly unique piece of hand blown functional art.
Quantities were extremely limited in this first run and we hope you get a chance to experience these works of art for yourself. We will likely do another run of these in the fall. Stay tuned.
Each glass is packaged in a custom black tube with gold foil print stickers on the outside to commemorate this limited collection. Standing at 3 3/4 in tall this first collection focuses on four of our most iconic peaks.
