GIFT SHOW GREATS: BIB AND SOLA GLASSWARE

by Marisa Marcantonio


With a shock of color at the bottom, hand blown glasses from the new British brand Bib and Sola provide a fresh perspective.  Whisper thin low ball glasses with clean lines look as though they are dipped in high pigment color. Through a hard to achieve process, the hand blown color is infused, in a glass that is sold individually or as a set of mixed colors. The giveback component of the company entails giving 10% of their profits to Charity: Water, which aids in providing clean water around in developing countries. Ethical and artistic go hand in hand.

The brightly colored bases look as though the glasses contain splashes of paint.
