‘saturn wine glasses’ by christopher yamane of fragile studios

in ‘saturn wine glasses‘, american art student christopher yamane of fragile studios adapts traditional glassblowing techniques towards the creation of an unspillable drinking glass. the rounded-bottomed, stemless piece features a handblown rim that serves as both fill line as well as a support frame for the glass, preventing it from spilling even when tipped over.

to create the pieces, yamane reappropriates a centuries-old italian glassblowing technique traditionally used for the production of goblet lids. by folding a bubble of glass, trapping air within it, he creates the ‘saturn ring’ that circumferences the bowl.

  • Nice look and good idea – make them with much thinner glass, and you’ve got a winner!

  • A very interesting concept for keeping wine off of the floor or other important items.
