“H glass” is a hand-blown double-sided glass one with the wide and shallow outward rim to use as a regular drinking glass and another with the narrow, deep inward rim for drinks to improve thermal dissipation and keep the aroma in. The thermal kilned mid-section is perfect for a snug grip.
From water to wine, a gesture of simple turning upside down for a different usage is not only practical but aesthetic in a manner of the synthetic typology of a drinking glass.
The lead-free crystal is a robust and heat resistant material, yet it also plays as an optical prism when it’s filled with liquids for dispersion and luminosity, which is desirable for ogling.
