Teaming up with the BOCA Group here in Cincinnati again we had a shoot showcasing the beautiful hand blown Zalto Glassware the restaurant uses. I have never seen glassware like this before the care and detail in the construction is amazing with knowing these are hand blown.
Here is some history about the company from their site.
"The development of theDenk`Art series was as influenced by the earth as by the universe beyond. The curve of the bowls are tilted at the angles of 24°, 48° and 72°, which are in accordance to the tilt angles of the Earth. The ancient Romans utilized this triumvirate of angles with their supply repositories, finding that produce stayed fresh for a longer time, and that it also showed improved taste. Due to these cosmic parallels, we believe that a wine can reach its utmost potential in a Denk`Art glass, developing everything that is possible in the nose as well as on palate, due to these cosmic parallels.
In the northern part of Lower-Austria the tradition of glass blowing goes back to the early 14th century. The Zalto family, a glassmaking dynasty whose roots reach back to Venice, settled down in this region six generations ago. Since then Zalto has been producing high quality hand-blown glass in Neunagelberg.
Our company was established 2006 in Neunagelberg, to give special focus on outstanding,hand-blown stemware with the acquired brands Zalto and Denk`Art.
True to tradition of the Zalto brand, today the Zalto glass house offers connoisseurs superior and state of the art glasses. All of them hand-blown by highly skilled glassblowers."
