The soft ameboid shape and gently hammered texture of the glass seems worthy for a party of angels so we named it Shaner. The generous curve of this roughly triangular-shaped glass makes for easy drinking and impressed guests. Hammered texture comes from the hand hammered molds in which we blow the glass. Yes, every little dent or ripple is the impression of the human hand. The resulting play of light through the glass is as elegant as it is alluring. Machine washable.
