These handblown cups by Chad Balster Glass are so special! Designed with optic ridges for a better grip, the foot of each glass is also decorated with swirls of color. Low and wide, they are PERFECT for sipping Kentucky bourbon in style. Each glass is made by hand and varies slightly in size. Dimensions: 3.5"x 3.5". Available in red/gold or multicolor.


Chad Balster (Louisville, KY) first started working in glass in Minneapolis in 1996 as a balmy summer job. Balster followed "hot glass" all over the country and then to Louisville where he was invited to be a resident artist at Louisville Glassworks, teaching and producing art. In 2012, he started Chad Balster Glass.
