Carafe for spirits was designed with focus on cuts, their esthetics, function and haptic potential. User can feel the cut texture when pouring the drink or swing the object from side to side. Cast of a boxer weapon in black glass is used as a carafe stopper. It’s diamond cut bottom is implying that the  future of cut glass aesthetic tradition should be fought for.
