Malfatti, translating to “misshapen” in Italian, is not just a glassware studio, but a physical expression of creativity.
Named for a type of hand-rolled dumpling, this distinct collection was a collaboration between Daniel Spitzer, a former Chihuly glassblower, and Jill Reynolds, an award-winning visual artist and flameworker.
Each unique glass is shaped freely using only hand tools and the breath of the artisan making it.
Made of borosilicate, the same lightweight glass used in laboratory flasks and high-end cookware, Malfatti’s pieces are soft in the hand without sacrificing the durability needed for everyday use.
Prizing the knowledge and artistic intimacy required to make each glass, Malfatti’s soul of creativity emanates from every bubble and dip in their borosilicate surfaces.
Camaraderie is alive and well within their ethos – in the pursuit of ensuring no one ever drinks alone, their glassware is available exclusively in pairs.
