Bump

Bump is a family of minimalist, borosilicate vessels designed to serve as the ritualistic instruments of every day drinking and hosting. Delicately handmade with subtle levels of pink and grey tonal translucency, Bump offers an elegant approach to the alchemical processes of tea making, mixology and floral arrangements.

With these articles for measuring, brewing, steaming, cooling, pouring and preserving we are exploring the transformative alchemy of curious instruments and chemical reactions. Inspired by laboratory apparatus, Bump is an exercise in the manipulation of the conical, spherical and tubular building blocks that we love to play with, of double walled glassmaking and a play in transparency and translucence.  

Manufacturing & Materiality

Mouth-blown into an engineered graphite mould, Bump is made of borosilicate, the heat resistant glass familiarly found in science laboratories. Light weight, durable and able to withstand high temperatures, borosilicate glass is usually seen in a colourless and clear state, but here it is elevated by the rare translucent pinks and glossy black raw material, that have been fused, blown and manipulated into delicate shapes.
