Mouthblown glass, hand-cut soapstone
When Juliana had the feeling that people were becoming more and more alienated from nature, she wanted to share her own connection to it by creating something that would bring the outside inside. A part of nature into home. Stena creates a direct connection and interaction between people and nature. One harnesses the power and function of nature by utilising the storage capacity and thermal function of soapstone.
Stena is a hand-blown glass carafe which makes use of the thermal function of natural soapstone. The perfectly fitting contact surface of the stone and glass transmit coldness. A chilled drink is kept cold on the stone frozen before use. Every piece is handmade and unique. Keep the stone in the freezer for 2 to 4 hours and take it out when needed. Place the custom-fit glass carafe on the stone and fill it with a chilled drink. The drink will remain chilled for a few hours.
