What do you do when you have an assortment of mismatched glassware pieces taking up space in cupboards and attics? Well, you could try sandblasting them followed by a good frosting which is exactly what product designer Michelle Ivankovic did.
Ivankovic, who is also the senior product designer for Umbra, hand selected the wine glasses and after the frosting procedure was completed, has sold each in a batch of four for around $70. Some have been surprised that Umbra, who describe themselves as “the worldwide leader in original, casual, contemporary, affordable design for the home”, have bothered to do this small profit procedure. Nevertheless, it has proven extremely popular and it seems as of writing this article, they are out of stock due to high customer demand for the frosine glasses.
