Sake Set in Amethyst
This set has been fully sandblasted. The way the color of the amethyst glass changes in the sunlight is gorgeous! Includes a carafe and two sake cups.
A Note about Sandblasted Glass
Sandblasting roughens the surface of the glass, replacing it's sheen with that beautiful frosted look. Sandbalsted glass that is not treated with a chemical sealant or properly oiled will take on the oils from your skin, giving it a patchy look when touched. Since these pieces are meant to be used to eating and drinking out of, I have not treated them with a gross chemical sealant. Instead I have polished each sandblasted surface with a tiny amount of either coconut or mineral oil, which will stay in place until the piece is washed with hot water and soap. You can reapply that protective layer by rubbing the glass with a soft microfiber cloth dipped in foodsafe mineral oil, coconut oil, or whatever foodsafe oil makes you happy.
