Jesper Jensen

At Jesper Jensen we make glassware out of discarded wine bottles. Our aim is to make beautiful, sustainable drinking glasses, without burdening the environment. Each glass is handmade with care, in our studio in Berlin. Every morning we bike around our neighborhood to collect empty wine bottles. Then we wash them, clean them, cut them, shape them and fire polish them into drinking glasses, jugs, and vases in all shapes and sizes. Basically the whole product is made of other people’s trash – and we’re proud of that! But of course, love for the environment is not enough – the glasses also have to be well designed. It is important for us that they are practical for everyday use; that they can survive the dishwasher, have a comfortable grip, and that they can be used again and again without breaking too easily. And of course that they look good!
