I work next to a lot of beautiful things. Among the most elevating of these are the Murano glass creations by Maestro Imperio Rossi. One of the styles that I find most fascinating due to its texture and appearance is the Sbruffo style. Last time we placed a Murano glass order, Emi and I made sure to add our favorite Sbruffo tumblers in the mix.
When we first received them I was so thrilled I was giddy. Since I have always admired Murano glass and this was my first piece, finally owning one was a momentous occasion. I had already handled many Sbruffo tumblers so the pleasurable tactile experience derived from sliding your fingers along the grooves of brushed glass was not new. Yet, this was mine now and my fingers are still learning all the different possible ways I can grip the glass.
After a month of ownership I feel that I am beginning to get to know it. My tumbler is a little bit irregular as the rim is slightly slanted. It has a drop of blue glass towards the top that has separate from the blue stripe. As I take a drink, I can feel with my pinkie finger what I call the umbilical button at the bottom (the glass was attached to the cane until ready to go in the cooling oven).
The Goto Sbruffo has so far provided a wonderful experience. It is very luxurious and upgrades the appearance of my desk at work. Since my eyes fall on it so much, it really helps me to drink more water throughout the day. I did not expect it to be so good for me.
