Zanfirico Goblets

$1,650.00
Handcrafted by Charles Savoie, these beautiful Zanfirico Goblets feature swirling warm colors of complex patterns. Sold as a set, each goblet is designed as a sculpture to be admired.

Charles Savoie is nationally recognized for his Italian style series of goblets. His Zanfirico style refers to a type of latticino cane made of colored glass rods that are twisted together to create complex patterns. His goblets are a technical marvel not only in their perfect form, but also because of his expertise in glass chemistry. Savoie makes all his own glasses from scratch combining sand and metallic oxides. Because of this unusual commitment to the science of glass, he has formulated a material with special working qualities and a unique color palette that has been essential in creating his signature style.

His Zanfirico style refers to a type of latticino cane made of colored glass rods that are twisted together to create complex patterns. His goblets are a technical marvel not only in their perfect form, which borders on the non-functional as some pieces are as tall as fifteen inches,  but also because of his expertise in glass chemistry. Savoie makes all his own glasses from scratch, combining sand and metallic oxides; sometimes using 17th century Venetian and Bohemian formulas which he modifies.
