Jarrod hand blows and perfects each piece of glass in the TAKTTIME collection. First gathering the hot glass then shaping the fluid material to the finished product. Jarrod focuses on detail, and his growlers and decanters feature thoughtful design elements like thumb rests and complimentary bottle stoppers. His cups and tumblers coordinate with these elegant containers through embellishment and decorative accents. His lighting designs are elegantly minimal and timeless. All of the designed elements in TAKTTIME’s collection are carefully planned and handcrafted. The result becomes a luxurious range of barware and lighting.
