Stratton, Redesigned

Simon Pearce Stratton Collection

Stratton truly expresses the art of glass making. The technique of putting air into the glass and twisting it through the stem takes exceptional skill and harkens back to old-world handcrafting techniques.

The air twist concept has existed all the way back to the Georgian times and Simon has a few fine examples in his personal collection.

Simon carefully evaluated each of the pieces and recently spent time with the glassblowing team in Quechee to reimagine the Stratton design.  The result is a more refined and singular approach to the stemware collection.  The air twist now has a consistent look, and the proportions of the glasses are updated to the right capacities for
today’s connoisseur.

Enjoy these works of art every day…
