Iconic Jerpoint Glass introduce electric summer ‘Zest Collection’ bursting with colour

Blackberry, Lime, Citrus, Blueberry and Pomegranate shades specially created by iconic studio

Jerpoint Glass, Ireland’s only glassblowing studio that apply traditional handcrafted techniques to full ranges of glassware introduce their ‘Jerpoint Glass Zest Collection’ for Summer 2015.

The collection adds a novel and fun summer twist to the iconic and instantly identifiable Jerpoint Glass.  Available in a spectrum of bespoke colours including Blackberry, Lime, Citrus, Blueberry and Pomegranate, the novel range can be used as small bowls, bud-vases and Hors D’oeuvre pots.

Each piece in this exclusive collection is individually hand-crafted by artisan glassblowers who firstly, add a layer of coloured glass and then, hand-form the shapes, finishing with a second flourish of colour. The solid colour is applied first with the second colour swirled over the top and the result is a dramatic coloured vase or bowl with a twist of alternative colour overlaid.

Kathleen Leadbetter, Director and Glass Artist of Jerpoint Glass says, “We are very proud of the latest design which is a bright and eclectic new addition to the Jerpoint offering. These bowls and vases are fruity by name and also by nature! We hope that people will choose a piece by their favourite colour or their favourite fruit and some might even love the whole set, as this product looks stunning as a five-candle arrangement on a dining table.”

The Jerpoint Glass Zest Collection starts at just €45.00 and is currently available online at www.jerpointglass.com and also in studio at Jerpoint in Stoneyford, Co Kilkenny.
