Malfatti is an Italian word meaning hand-rolled pasta, essentially translating to 'poorly made', which is the tongue-in-cheek name of the creative glass studio of Jill Reynolds and Daniel Spitzer.
Based in New York, the husband and wife team create pieces that couldn't be further from 'poorly made'. Using only hand tools and breath, each piece of glassware is meticulously handblown using borosilicate glass, the same material used in laboratory-ware.
Borosilicate glass is strong, yet delightfully delicate to touch. Being heat and thermal-shock resistant means each glass can be used to serve hot beverages, along with being dishwasher safe.
COREY ASHFORD is privileged to showcase and bring the work of Malfatti Glass to Melbourne, Australia.
