Ben Dombey has been working with molten glass for over a decade. The goal to create the perfect rocks glass began after a trip to Scotland in 2011 and, after years of experimentation, he started Glassblowerben, LLC, to produce these glasses.
The original is the medium size glass, perfect for a nice whiskey on the rocks. Different sizes evolved for those who take their scotch neat or enjoy a fresh mixed margarita with just enough salt on the rim. Every single glass that we make is inflated by lung power and is 100% hand made in the United States.
The glasses have a fabulous weight to them and truly feel great in your hand and sensuous on the lips. They have a unique texture on the lower half. This adds to the hand made quality, makes them very distinct, and really shows off your favorite beverage. No matter what stamp is on the underside of the glass, side by side they always look like a great set.
As with anything handmade, glasses will vary slightly from one another, adding to their unique charm. Everything tastes better from artisan glass.
