Honeycomb Tumbler

The Honeycomb Tumbler, designed by Carl Rotter in 1940, is mouth-blown and then hand-turned to grind the dimples into the glass to create the final honeycomb form. The optical effect of peering through the glass is mesmerizing and the time invested to hand-craft each glass makes these tumblers more than a joy to hold.
