why this product

These wine glasses are designed and blown by Brooklyn glassblower Andrew Hughes. Each glass is individually made, and every thumb imprint is carefully inscribed. Andrew gathers up a bit of clear glass from the furnace and blows a bubble, carefully shaping it with his blowpipe. He drops the bubble in a cherry wood mold, where it takes its final shape. He later uses a propane torch to create the thumb indentation.

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.
