As I was away from blogging for past few days, info about Bombay Sapphire Designer Glass Competition 2008 remained in my mail unread!

And I missed the competition in which I myself have liked to participate! The competition closed yesterday.

The Designer Glass Competition is an annual event held to recognize excellence among emerging design talent. The global competition final will take place in September during the London design festival.

Here are few stunning martini cocktail glass designs from Bombay Sapphire Designer Glass competition 2007’s finalists:

The inspiration for ‘Bangle’ glass (above) was the culture of jewels in India! The delicate bracelet, a bangle of gold lends an element of nobility and quality which serves to unite the separate elements of glass.

blue rose

Designer: Kazuya Washio

The idea of a blue rose is impossible but the impossible takes shape before our eyes.


jewellery glass

Designer: Chawalit Banpot

The design is inspired by the pure and elegant reflection of precious diamond.


Designer: Yen-Ting Kuo

Inspired by the ‘Linnak’ a twin cup used in Taiwan aboriginal weddings or festivals to enhance close relationships. The two cups are connected together by an eye in the middle. One cup represents tradition while the other cup represents modernity.
