Rainbow Connection

Let's toast to the beauty of nature and the colorful show it puts on every evening. Made of borosilicate glass, Jim Loewer captures the layers and colors of the sunset through a complex glass-blowing process. To achieve a realistic look, he melts light and dark shades into glass tubing, rotating for equal distribution and solidifying with a clear cover after getting it just right. His balance of translucent and opaque colors creates a natural striped pattern, adding a fun vibe to an overall sophisticated piece. Dishwasher safe. Handmade in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Pair your Sunset Carafe with our Sunset Glasses - Set of 2.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Glass artist Jim Loewer is inspired by Flaubert's ironic definition of art: "of all lies, art is the least untrue." But this much is true: his glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error, and he loves the relatively instant gratification that comes with the process. A bit of a renaissance man, Jim has an undergraduate degree in painting, a teaching degree, and a law degree he obtained studying at night while making glass by day. Jim focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.

Comments about UncommonGoods Sunset Carafe:

The carafe is beautiful and will be well-received, but the colors become increasingly less vibrant toward the base (whereas the picture depicts bold colors in the base and transitioning to the base).
