Designed to hold cocktails or water, this tall and elegant carafe makes bold centrepiece for your dining table.
During the blowing process, the sides of the carafe are heated and compressed to create indents on the side that allow for easy grip, making it easy to pour when full. The carafe comes with a straight stirring stick for mixing cocktails.
About the Maker: Katie-Ann Houghton (KAH) aims to challenge the culture of mass consumption by creating work with innovative design and handmade quality. Katie’s design philosophy is based around the idea that the objects that we engage with every day should engage our senses and bring us joy through use.
Designed to be both functional and practical, KAH aims to change the conventional expectations of tableware, and have us view each piece as both a piece of contemporary design and an object of use.
Katie-Ann Houghton is an Artist, Designer and Maker based in Sydney Australia. Her contemporary works are inspired by early 20th Century Design and embody a decade long passion for traditional Venetian glassmaking techniques.
