Inspired by the rebellious Ariel from the Little Mermaid, who longed to be a part of the human world, Artisème with Lukáš Houdek bring these beautiful and unique shell glasses for those who are not afraid of a pinch of irony at the dinner table and in life. Just like Ariel used a fork as a hairbrush or a pipe as a musical instrument, we believe some objects look just as good in their new form and shape.  They say the seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake. Since we can't all move under the sea, we thought to bring a bit of sea into your cocktail bars, kitchens and shelves this summer.  Made from natural shells from a private collection and handmade or factory-made glass stands, the Ariel glasses celebrate old traditions such as mouth-blown glass and new habits such as upcycling and creative reuse.

Notes If you wish to receive coloured or white scallop shell, please include the colour in the notes and we will ship your preferred colour upon availability. Each shell glass is different in size and form due to the shell origin and the glass stand. The shell glasses are fully functional and meant for drinking. But just like most handmade products, they are not dishwasher-safe. We recommend washing the shells with hot water and soap after each use and storing them vertically. 
Please contact with any additional questions regarding shipping or delivery.

Lukáš Houdek

The glassy comedian 

Thanks to its nature, glass is traditionally considered to be a rather serious material. Lukáš, a young Czech glassmaker and designer, disagrees completely! For him, glassmaking is – above all – fun. 

He uses all kinds of techniques, doesn’t shy away from colours, and likes to combine different materials, too. What makes his pieces distinct and recognizable, is that there are – basically – Lukáš’s jokes in disguise. What to expect? Pop-culture references, exaggerating and quite a bit of parody. One of his most notable pieces is a crystal chandelier in the shape of a basketball basket. 

While he (clearly) enjoys humour, one thing he takes seriously is his craftsmanship. And it is paying off.
