Sake Set – Malfatti



Malfatti’s perfectly misshapen sake set is made from mouth blown, carefully warped borosilicate glass - the same material used in laboratory equipment, transmitters and telescopes. This material is so much thinner and lighter than traditional ‘soft glass’ that Malfatti’s four miniature 1.5 ounce choko glasses seem to float between the fingers, elevating the ceremony to the celestial. In a quiet nod to the traditional tokkuri shape, the serving jug is ever-so-slightly bulbous and holds enough for eight sake servings. Despite glassware traditionally being favoured for chilled sake, this delicate, thermal-resistant set is perfect for both styles – not to mention amaron montenegro, absinthe and tequila. Platters and rugs are perfectly acceptable wedding presents. Artist-made, mouth blown sake sets are next level.

New York-based master glassblowers Daniel Spitzer and Jill Reynolds are award-wining artists who primarily work in the realm of large scale installations, sculpture, and chandeliers. Between them, they’ve worked on the lobby at the Bellagio, been featured in the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the Seattle Art Museum and the Microsoft Corporation’s collections, and have won fellowships and residencies everywhere from Pittsburgh Glass Center to Harvard. Malfatti, which translates as misshapen, is their side project. Meet them in our journal.


Malfatti glassware comes carefully wrapped in tissue and bubble wrap and packed in a sturdy, cylindrical cardboard tube to prevent breakage.
