A modern twist on ancient silhouettes, the Orleans collection was inspired by a treasure trove of ancient ceramic vessels that were brought to light after a Roman shipwreck was recently uncovered off the coast of France. Our artisans seek to capture that connection between the ancient and modern in every piece. Working in a flow of synchronized precision, glassblowers draw on their immense skill to ma inta in the deep optic by hand, manipulating the molten glass to create the shape without throwing off the balance of the glass. The process is particularly complex, requiring a rare mastery of proportion to ma inta in a leveled surface. Handmade in our Vermont workshop, the Orleans collection is defined by its lum inous shapes and a dynamic sense of scale. Handmade in America by Simon Pearce glassblowers. Created from lead-free glass using centuries-old techniques. Hand-wash with warm water and mild detergent. Do not expose glass to extreme heat changes, such as filling with hot liquid or placing in the freezer. A shock in temperature can cause fractures.
