The theme of the May Artisan Box is……Hydrate!
We are thrilled to share that we have partnered with Water.org, a nonprofit that pioneers safe water and sanitation solutions around the world for our May Artisan Box.
On this blue planet, water is the ultimate elixir. Everything is better that’s hydrated—your body, your mood, your pets, your plants. This month’s kit offers your hydration efforts both practicality and pizazz.
1) Hand Blown Mexican Glass (Retail $15).
Few art forms will put you in as much awe at earth’s materials and their chemical processes as hand blown glass. What was once a hot and incoherent blob is now your cool and smooth new drinking vessel.
It takes a talented artisan indeed to form molten glass into elegant, coherent shapes. Many such artisans live in the city of Tonala? in the Mexican state of Jalisco, a handicraft hub, especially of pottery and glass.
Dedicated to preserving this artform, Cristaluc was established in 2001 and today employs 40 local artisans. The company provides its artisans a steady income and a supportive and inspiring space to practice their art. The process of making your new glass involved 8 to 14 glassmakers working as team.
Despite its hot and blob-like beginnings, we hope your vessel brings you (or your flowers) some cool, clarifying moments. Suggested use: Drink out of it, or use as a vase. Measurements: 5-1/4″ height.
