Carafe and Cup set - Hyacinth


Carafe and Cup set - Hyacinth


This bright purple, hyacinth-colored carafe and cup set is made by Public Glass, a nonprofit arts organization in San Francisco committed to providing access to the resources needed to make explorations in glass a possibility for everyone. The transparent cup fits on top of the carafe, creating a saturation of color where the two objects overlap.  Both the carafe and cup appear to float above any surface due to a slight lift at their bases, making this beautifully functional object seem lighter than air. This set is perfect for a bedside table, desk, or guest room. As each set is handmade, very slight variations in color, tone, texture and size may be perceptible.

Since 1997, Public Glass has been San Francisco's only public access glass studio and school. As a 501(c)3 arts organization located in the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco, their outreach includes a full curriculum of glass courses taught by local and nationally recognized artists, as well as programming for underserved youth and adults, group experiences, events, and exhibitions.


Please note - these glass objects are made to order by hand and color saturations may vary slightly from piece to piece.

 This is a pre-order item. All pre-orders will be ready to ship in 3 - 4 weeks from the time the order is placed.
