We have the first spoiler for the GlobeIn May 2016 Artisan Box. The theme is Hydrate!
On this blue planet, water is the ultimate elixir. Everything is better that’s hydrated—your body, your mood, your pets, your plants. This month’s kit offers your hydration efforts both practicality and pizazz.
Of course, water is no luxury—it’s a basic human right. So it seemed appropriate to partner up this month with Water.org, an organization working to bring safe water to all 663 million people around the world who currently lack it. This month, your drink is also someone else’s.

Each Hydrate Box will come with:
1) Hand Blown Mexican Glass (Retail $15).
Few art forms will put you in as much awe at earth’s materials and their chemical processes as hand blown glass. What was once a hot and incoherent blob is now your cool and smooth new drinking vessel.
It takes a talented artisan indeed to form molten glass into elegant, coherent shapes. Many such artisans live in the city of Tonala? in the Mexican state of Jalisco, a handicraft hub, especially of pottery and glass.
Dedicated to preserving this artform, Cristaluc was established in 2001 and today employs 40 local artisans. The company provides its artisans a steady income and a supportive and inspiring space to practice their art. The process of making your new glass involved 8 to 14 glassmakers working as team.
Despite its hot and blob-like beginnings, we hope your vessel brings you (or your flowers) some cool, clarifying moments.
Suggested use: Drink out of it, or use as a vase.
