Uniquely crafted and one-of-a-kind, the Pyrex® Watercolor Collection™ transforms everyday Pyrex glass into beautiful works of art. Bathed in gorgeous blue swirled motifs with a vibrant design, this collection is perfect to add a personal touch to home entertaining and decorating or to give as a gift.
Born from the interior design trend of incorporating artisanal pieces into the home and catering to the influence of the blue and white color story, the Pyrex Watercolor Collection evokes the motion – and emotion – of the surging sea by using liquid-in-liquid colorant injection technology to infuse color into clear molten glass. The process creates beautiful, artistic wisps of color in original patterns within the glass.
“I am thrilled to release this collection that provides our consumers with unique, expressive pieces,” said Austin Rothbard, President of the Americas at World Kitchen, LLC. “Each one-of-a-kind dish incorporates blue bursts similar to releasing a fountain pen in water. The combination of functionality with beauty will allow owners to proudly display food in creative ways.”
The Watercolor Collection also maintains the same standards of the Pyrex glass quality that’s been trusted for generations and loved around the world, with all pieces featuring a non-porous surface that does not absorb food odors, flavors or stains, and are safe to use in the microwave, pre-heated oven, refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher.
The collection is now available in-store at Target and Macy’s, also available online at ShopWorldKitchen.com. Individual pieces range from $7.99-$12.99. Sets are also available and range from $24.99-$29.99.
