Careful consideration has been given to the design of each MARKTHOMAS glass.
To create an elevated tasting experience was the ultimate objective, while appealing to the visual senses in each glass design and creating aesthetically pleasing, architecturally sculptured stemware.
All glasses are handcrafted with a view to best showcase each high quality wine and enable it to air, exhibit its color and, at the same time, maintain its freshness.
MARKTHOMAS works with local and international glass designers and architects in the creation of its various glass ranges.
While the quality of the raw materials has improved and become more varied over the decades, the manufacturing process of a mouth blown glass still remains very much unchanged.
Established by the Venetian glass making tradition in the 11th century, the manufacture of high quality, hand-made glassware expanded to Continental Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries.
Even today artists in the glassmaking trade still draw on the experience and tradition of their ancestors.
The creation of our glassware requires the technical understanding and years of expertise acquired by these highly skilled glassblowers, to assure a robust quality and consistent design.
And by strict definition, each glass is singularly "unique" - a result of the small nuances as each is created by hand.
