“Glow Set” is a luminous tea brewing. The aim of the project is to maximize the luminance and heat potential of a small candle. The tea set celebrates the process of slow tea making while showing it through a light effect, becoming a decorative object that brings a pleasant moment of contemplation.
The spherical shape of the glass bottle acts as a lens, magnifying the light of the candle, and showing the beauty of the tea.
Tea can be brewed slowly in 3 to 4 hours or can be used to maintain the infusion hot. The flask rotates in every direction for serving the tea. The strainer fits the cup, which has a cork sleeve as thermal insulation.
This set is carefully handcrafted in turned wood, cork and borosilicate glass.
