Arda Glassware takes a thoroughly modern approach to dinnerware design, yet prides itself on keeping alive the glass-making and glazing traditions developed in Turkey during the Ottoman period. Founded in 1989, this innovative company creates exquisite platters, plates, and other glassware essentials using a combination of manual and machine-driven techniques, including centrifugation and the Schiller method (machine-blowing). Arda's seemingly endless range of styles includes transparent glass, alabaster, and painted pieces available in hundreds of distinctive patterns and shapes — from the gilded, ornate Vanessa series (which would have fit perfectly in Louis XVI's flatware collection) to authentic-looking oyster dishes embellished with silver plating.
Hailing from Europe, these decorative bowls are made of handspun glass. All boast bold motifs (bright colors and metallics) and unexpected details (many are hand-painted and then sealed). They’re the perfect finishing pieces for a kitchen, breakfast nook, or even a foyer.
