why this product

The shape of this wine decanter is based on ship carafes, in which a wide, stable base was preferred in order to prevent spillage aboard boats at sea. Brooklyn glassblower Andrew Hughes created these vessels exclusively for Kaufmann Mercantile based on a model he gifted to a friend.   First, Andrew gathers glass from a furnace filled with molten material with his blowpipe. He then free-blows the decanter, manipulating the shape while continually reheating the piece in the glory hole – a gas-fired chamber that maintains a material's working malleability. Each piece is free-blown and therefore, completely unique.

use & care

Do not place in dishwasher. Hand wash to preserve the longevity of the piece.

production & design

Glassblower Andrew Hughes created these unique glass pieces especially for Kaufmann Mercantile. Armed with a degree in glass from Rhode Island School of Design, Andrew began his career as a sculptor’s assistant, finding time on the side to create glass pieces for himself and his friends. Orders started coming in. To keep up with the demand, he became a full-time glassblower and now works out of a studio in Brooklyn, New York.
