Martini Glass to Compliment Bombay Sapphire

Bombay Sapphire is pretty unique with a delicate botanical flavor. Of course the most luxe martini drink demands the same from accompanying glassware. Benjamin Hubert has designed a martini glass to reflect that aesthetic. Hand blown and shaped, this martini glass evokes the organic and botanical sensibility of Bombay Sapphire. Of course when not in use, turn the glass over and use it as a coat rack for your hamster!

Designer: Benjamin Hubert

The following images illustrate the process. 1. Shaping the molten glass.

2. Blowing the bowl into a cork mould.

3. Shaping the bowl.

4. Adding and shaping the glass for the stem of the vessel.

5. Maintaining The temperature of the Glass.

6. Adding and shaping the ‘Root System base’.

7. Maintaining The temperature of the Glass.

8. Adding the decorative root system.

9. Final Adjustments.

    Nice craftmanship but where is design?

  • Brian says:

    Nice process shots for an unremarkable product. Try using some of that creative energy on the bottle because they’ve missed out on a great opportunity with the glass.

    doh – someone beat me to it, I was just about to paste in the same link ๐Ÿ™

    shame it’s not an original idea! Bombay should request their money back and etienne should sue him!

    LoL!

    So…no third foot? No pontil? Just anneal, cut, and fire-polish?

  • nawter says:

    It sure is surprising that the classiest of drinks should be imbibed from the tackiest of glasses.

    Old school class will NEVER be out of style. Don’t try to improve upon it, rather try to embrace it.

    I really like this. Why? A couple reasons. Firstly, it's very pretty; i.e., a nice design. Second, and most importantly, it's actually MADE. 99% of the junk on Yanko is completely and totally unfeasable. Here's something that's not only cool, it's realistic. Kudos, my friend.
