Each glass is hand-blown from lead-free crystal and specially designed to offer an unrivaled tasting experience. The design is simple, yet deliberate and is meant to appeal to the senses – visually, texturally and with each lingering sip.
‘Two distinct bends in these handblown crystal glasses created by Austrian designer Thomas Zichtl set them apart from the rest.’
Many wine enthusiasts seek an unrivalled tasting experience for fine wines and spirits coupled with a cutting edge, contemporary design away from mass produced, industrial glassware and Mark Thomas provide just that. The MARKTHOMAS Double Bend series is specially molded with lead-free crystal to enhance the aeration of wine, allowing for a bold and rich taste. The hand-blown design is simple, yet deliberate and is meant appeal to the senses – both visually and with each lingering sip. The double-bend design outlines the measurement for a perfect pour, indicating the ideal amount for a wine tasting in the first bend and the average pour size for restaurants and wine connoisseurs in the second bend.
MARKTHOMAS works with local and international glass designers and architects in the creation of its various glass ranges. While the quality of the raw materials has improved and become more varied over the decades, the manufacturing process of a mouth blown glass still remains very much unchanged. Established by the Venetian glass making tradition in the 11th century, the manufacture of high quality, hand-made glassware expanded to Continental Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries. Even today artists in the glassmaking trade still draw on the experience and tradition of their ancestors. The creation of our glassware requires the technical understanding and years of expertise acquired by these highly skilled glassblowers, to assure a robust quality and consistent design. And by strict definition, each glass is singularly "unique" - a result of the small nuances as each is created by hand.
Careful consideration has been given to the design of each MARKTHOMAS glass. To create an elevated tasting experience was the ultimate objective, while appealing to the visual senses in each glass design and creating aesthetically pleasing, architecturally sculptured stemware. All glasses are handcrafted with a view to best showcase each high quality wine and enable it to air, exhibit its color and maintain its freshness.
MARKTHOMAS glasses meet today’s requirements for both professional as well as personal use. Our designs were created to assure optimum robustness, and compare favorably to industrial machine glasses when it comes to ease of cleaning, durability and longevity.
All glasses are dishwasher safe. Frequent washing will not cloud the glass nor reduce the transparency of the crystalline. This has been achieved as a result of the exclusion of lead oxide in each manufacturing step, resulting in lead-free crystal of superior quality. A MARKTHOMAS product is the perfect glass for any special occasion, while designed for everyday use. All glasses in the series are dishwasher safe.
