There is something about glassware that makes it the perfect material for making an impression. The cool mystery of it, the dazzling glints of light captured in its essence and the tantalising sparkle of when a drink is poured into a glass all contribute to the essential beauty of glass. Knowing exactly how to fashion it into wonderful homeware items takes skill, experience and dedication. All of which the company Leonardo knows only too well. Here at Dotmaison we love checking out the latest instalments of their ongoing love affair with the sheer beauty of glassware. Here are a few of our favourites…
The (above) la perla set of 2 cocktail glasses show exactly how well Leonardo understands the majesty of glassware. Imaginatively created using a unique Murano glass bead during production, the spell binding flash of colour makes a powerful impression. Available in four different shades of colour, the glasses are perfect for when the occasion demands cocktails of a certain character.
The island of Burano just off the coast of Venice, Italy is world famous for the art of glass making. This 1.5l glass jug by Leonardo makes perfect use of the hand-blown glass that the island is so well known for. Delicately shaped and styled into a cool and modern gem, the entrancing jug looks easily set to keep pride of place when it’s time for a party.
Burano glass also features in this exquisite set of four tumblers. A speckled pattern and four different captivating bursts of colour help to create a warm and inviting template of imagination and ideas. The high quality coloured glass is perfect for making a big impression and parties, gatherings and celebrations.
The ferrara vase – available in brown or turquoise – brings a wonderful rounded artistry to interiors. Bringing about a refined colour and atmosphere to the home, the stylish vase is suitable for small to medium sized floral bouquets. Yet another perfect example of Leonardo’s precision and dedication to the best in glassware.
