The handcrafted wine glasses by Mark Thomas are mouth-blown in the Czech Republic, and the concept of these glasses is - as it is so often – genially simple and as a result just genius.
When developing these glasses, Thomas pondered on the design of the perfect wine-glass. His interest was not focused on the appearance but rather on the perfect functionality of the glass.
A big foot and a not too long handle for the perfect stableness, the perfect glass for perfect stability despite nearly unbelievably slight wall thickness, the whole glass of course dishwasher-safe and - MOST IMPORTANT - the shape of a goblet, which allows the perfect enjoyment of wine, as it brings out the true character of the potation.
After many attempts, the unique, eponymous shape was developed: the DOUBLE BEND. A first bend, which extends the glass, to release the flavors, a perfect curve like a cone to give the tonic room to move, and a last curve tapering back, to bring the flavors into focus again for nose and gums.
