Borosilicate Glassware Green Cactus Set


Borosilicate is a type of glass with silica and boron trioxide as the main glass-forming constituents making it more resistant to thermal shock than any other common glass. This glass is subjected to much less thermal stress and can withstand temperature differentials without fracturing of about 165 °C (297 °F). So you can use it as cookware, freezer storage, or just to look beautiful and delicate while being super resilient. We work with a woman founder in Turkey to bring you these exquisite pieces. Each glass is uniquely produced for you, handmade without the use of molds. Product colors are not painted, they are produced with colored glasses. There may be slight differences between the product and the images.

It shines and shimmers.  It holds your water.  It holds your plants.  It’s both delicate and strong. At Equal Hands we seek out makes with expertise in both glass recycling so beer and wine bottles can find a new and improved home in your home, as well as very sturdy Borosilicate glass options which can last a lifetime and replace many of the plastic products in your home.

Borosilicate glass was first developed by German glassmaker Otto Schott in the late 19th century in Jena. This early borosilicate glass thus came to be known as Jena glass. After Corning Glass Works introduced Pyrex in 1915, the name became synonymous for borosilicate glass in the English-speaking world. Borosilicate glass is the name of a glass family with various members tailored to completely different purposes. Borosilicate glass is created by combining and melting boric oxide, silica sand, soda ash and alumina. Since borosilicate glass melts at a higher temperature than ordinary silicate glass, some new techniques were required for industrial production. The manufacturing process depends on the product geometry and can be differentiated between different methods like floating, tube drawing, or molding.

This world, at times, seems too big for us. Massive amounts of energy going in the wrong directions. That inertia can seem overwhelming for one person. But one person, joining others can have an impact. Particularly when the impulse is pure and inspired by a thing of beauty. Our purchase decisions can change the planet’s fate and people’s lives for the better.
