"There is really no magic about it - it is merely patient attention to details," says an eminent Cornet Barcelona artist. Each Cornet Barcelona piece is masterfully shaped and mouth-blown by seasoned artists of the craft using traditional methods. Glassblowing, an art form which traces back to the Roman Empire, involves heating glass to between 1,600 and 1,900°F, then carefully forming the fiery-hot blobs with a keen eye and steady hand. After being crafted to the ideal shape, the glasses are painstakingly hand-painted by artists with more than 60 years of experience and an unparalleled attention to detail. The end result is a one-of-a-kind work of art.
Each Cornet Barcelona glass is inspired by the work Antoni Gaudí Cornet, the renowned Spanish artist whose breathtaking Sagrada Família Basilica in Barcelona draws over 2.5 million visitors annually. Recognized as, “sensual, spiritual, whimsical, exuberant,” by Time Magazine, the structure has become a nationally recognized landmark for Barcelona and throughout the world. Each glass perfectly captures the essence of the Basilica’s breathtaking beauty—and its dazzling banks of stain-glassed windows that steal the breath of visitors worldwide. Hold these gorgeous glasses up to the light and experience mesmerizing colors and patterns so glorious, it’s as if the Basilica's brilliant sunlit windows have come to rest in your hand.
Even the wine taste better!
"I received my Cornet Barcelona stemless wine glass yesterday and I swear my wine tasted so much better. The beauty of this stemless wine glass never let my thoughts when I was requesting a Christmas gift from my adult son. What I received was a generic stemless wine glass set of four. I smiled, said thank you, and promptly set out to find the stemless wine glass I had seen in July. To my delight, or dismay, I'm not sure which... there was only one available and I immediately ordered it. 1 stemless wine glass isn't enough and so my quest to find another always referred. Well, to my delight, this morning, I could place an order and I could expect a delivery of my 2nd Cornet Barcelona stemless in the middle of the month. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing the artistry of this uniquely beautiful stemless wine glass. At my age, it's the little things in life, that make me happy. My hope would be able to have a set of 4 stemless Cornet Barcelona in my hutch so that all who enjoy a glass wine with me, will also enjoy drinking from a stemless Cornet Barcelona." - Tanner.
Gorgeous Wine Glasses!
"I LOVE these wine glasses. The hand painting is beautiful (I especially love the gold) and they are heavy and quite large, making them the perfect red wine glass. There are my new go to wine glasses for when I have company over. It is so fun being able to use something other than the typical plain wine glasses when entertaining. I actually keep these out on display in my kitchen when I'm not using them because they are so pretty. LOVE!!" - Julia L. Izzolo
