Handmade Glass

Each hourglass holds either 5 minutes of black colored sand, and when turned, it will add a striking decorative aspect to any home or office. The hourglass is handmade from borosilicate glass using a lampworking process, creating ridges that are tactilely and visually pleasing. The process involves melting glass with a torch and, once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. Due to the handmade nature of the product, there might be slight variations in the finish of each piece. Little bubbles, tiny black dots and minor scratches might be found in the glass as a result of the handmade process and are not considered defects.
