A Glass Watering Bulb That Can Change Your Life

November 15, 2018

Made of borosilicate laboratory glass and blown by mouth, a watering bulb from Italy-based design house Ichendorf Milano will mesmerize you when the sunlight hits at just the right angle. Added benefit: It delivers a calibrated drip to a favorite houseplant. The price of perfection is a mere €12.

“In the hands of Ichendorf master glaziers, borosilicate glass is transformed into very thin, lightweight pieces that are also supremely strong and resistant to temperature changes,” note the designers.
