As the holiday entertaining days approach, Simon Pearce designed a variety of new items to enhance good times with family and friends. With the popularity of the recently launched Shoreham whiskey glass; we extend the unique gesture of its curve into a complimentary decanter and double old-fashioned. The decanter’s streamlined silhouette is a statement piece for any bar, and feels great in the hand when pouring and serving for celebratory times this season.
A wonderful new entertaining item is the Hampton chiller. Pursuing design concepts that are both functional and beautiful, we brought together hammered stainless steel and our glass to create a stunning combination. The spherical glass shape can be filled with crushed ice, and the benefit of the 18/10 stainless insert is to keep your wine or champagne bottles chilled without them getting wet sitting in the ice. Separately, the metal component can be used as a tabletop sleeve like a coaster to place a bottle in, while the glass shape can double as an ice bucket or even a vase.
Exploring interesting material combinations is a hallmark of our design pursuits. Expanding on our popular barware category, we brought together a smooth sculpted wood handle with a stainless steel element to create a few quintessential bar tools. As a great gift for the home bar user, we created a grey leather/suede pouch to conveniently put the tool set away when not in use.
As our forest of glass evergreen trees keep growing, we explored other mediums that our unique tree design can be interpreted in. After sculpting our trees as prototypes to be made out of beeswax which were launched last year as tree candles, we then took the same models to cast the trees in our own pottery. Two options of glazes are available of a classic white dove, or the reactive green glaze called moss glen that has interesting tonal detail along its edges. The new pottery evergreens make a great addition to any glass tree forest to create a striking decor statement.
We developed the technique of adding a watery swirl around a glass vessel first on a Waterbury tumbler and then a lamp. To add a touch of expressiveness and swirl to our wine glass collections, we brought this concept into a classic red and white wine glass shape. Each Waterbury glass is entirely unique resulting from a small gather of molten glass added on the glass floor while the vessel is being formed.
Our perfectly imperfect form and edge treatment of the Burlington Hurricane shows off the unique characteristics of our glass. This year, it has been interpreted into two new sizes. The new small and large sizes combined with the medium are great as a grouping in clusters of all three items on a table, console or mantel. Perfect for illuminating a holiday table for gathering.
