The making process
All our glassware is mouth-blown. It’s a traditional technique that leaves small air bubbles trapped in the glass. We fire-polish every piece to remove as many as we can, but we can’t remove them all. And we wouldn’t want to – it’s a mark of true craftsmanship.
Red wine glasses have a bigger bowl than white. Because generally red wines are ‘bigger’ so need more room for the flavours to emerge. Whereas white wine glasses have a smaller surface area so the wine doesn’t oxidise too fast, preserving the light, delicate notes typical of white wines.
The inspiration for this style came from a French country wine glass. It had a soft, rounded shape that felt very relaxed and informal. So we made Barnes quite casual, for everyday living – the kind of glassware you’d take out into the garden.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
You can put our glassware in the dishwasher but to keep it looking its best, we recommend you wash it up by hand.
