Curva Artisan Series Double Wall Beverage Glasses and Tumblers – Unique 8 oz Thermo Insulated Drinking Glasses, Set of 4
Posted on August 23rd, 2012
Made of durable, heat resistant, mouth-blown borosilicate glass of the finest quality, the CURVA is the latest addition to the Ozeri Artisan Series of award-winning handcrafted drinkware. Borosilicate glass is stronger than common glass, shatter-resistant, and with the CURVA's double-walled design, it offers the ultimate insulation to maintain drinks at their ideal temperature. The CURVA's unique double wall design suspends drinks within an inner wall for an attention-grabbing optical effect. Each glass is made to keep your hands cool even with your hottest drinks, and free of condensation with your chilled beverages. The patent-pending CURVA is great for coffee, cappuccinos, hot or iced teas, cocktails, frozen beverages and much more. Each set contains four unique, handmade glasses designed for lifetime use. The CURVA glasses are completely dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe, and ship in an elegantly printed and carefully packaged box with a 1 year warranty.

Some cups contain way too much glass or ceramic (resource hogs–boo, hiss), but not the CURVAs–they’re surprisingly lightweight.
A word or twelve of caution, however: You’ll likely spend more time gawking at your drinks than ever before. “The liiight in my liiibation! Eeet’s so prettteee, my preciousss!”
Cheers, fellow space chimps! I raise my glass to you.
Stylish, solid, and practical
Been in my kitchen for a couple days and I find myself reaching for one of these each and every time. Other glasses just no longer cut it. 8oz is a perfect amount in my opinion. The glasses feel solid but all glass is fragile in its own respect so I’d still be very careful with them especially in a dishwasher environment. I love these beautiful glasses.
Beautiful and strong, but not dishwasher safe
So no more dishwasher for these glasses. I’m glad I bought several sets so that I still have enough, but I will probably try contacting the company for a replacement.
Functional and Fabulous
The glass seems very solid. I have some experience with double walled glasses and they often times feel very flimsy and break very easily. These glasses have stood up to the rigors of frequent usage with minimal scratching and absolutely no cracking. I use metal cocktail picks and large unusually shaped ice frequently, and where other glasses have shattered these glasses have so far been very durable. The structure of these glasses functions perfectly when it comes to hot and cold drinks. They insulate perfectly so the external layer can remain room temperature while the middle remains the temperature of the drink. This makes cold beverages warm up much more slowly and hot beverages not burn your hands.
Aesthetically these glasses leave nothing to be desired. The four different patterns offer enough diversity to keep things interesting but share a common theme which makes them truly feel like a set. I am a fledgling mixologist and the presentation some of my fancier concoctions have greatly benefited from the usage of these glasses. Layered drinks look truly stunning in these glasses. They are also the perfect size for 2 inch spherical ice cubes which can add some unique flair to any iced beverage. Additionally the unusual shapes can make molecular mixology drinks involving spherification really stand out. The different shapes and sizes help to contrast the created spheres for some truly unique cocktails.
For the cost I highly recommend these glasses.
