carafe and glasses - organic design

Rifniška karafa in kozarec


Rifniško karafo in kozarce sem oblikoval z namenom, da izboljšam izkušnjo uživanja v organskih vinih, saj smo opazili, da se vino razvije na drugačen način glede na kozarec, s katerim pride v stik. Ti izdelki so zasnovani s poudarkom na organskosti oblike in materialov. Organsko oblikovanje izhaja iz opazovanja narave, zato sem pri oblikovanju izhajal iz misli na prostor, kjer pridelujemo vino.


Kozarec stoji postrani kot naš hrib Rifnik, na katerem so staroselci živeli od mlajše kamene dobe naprej (5.000 l.pr.Kr.). Kozarec je oblikovan kot dlan, ki je bila nedvomno prva posoda za pitje. Poleg različnih glinenih črepinj so arheologi na našem hribu našli le dve steklovini kozarcev, izdelanih iz steklene paste v obdobju starejše železne dobe, 700 l.pr.Kr. Zelenkasta barva daje slutiti primesi  bakra v kremenu, druga, oranžna, pa tudi železovega oksida.

Okoli Rifnika so delovale manjše »glažute«, ki so talile kremenčevo moko v pečeh, steklo-pihalci pa so s svojimi izdihi oblikovali različne steklene posode. Steklarna Rogaška Slatina deluje že od leta 1665, vse ostale glažute pa so žal ugasnile svoja ognjišča. S pomočjo Steklarne Rogaška Slatina smo udejanjili naše načrte za kozarce in karafo.


Mehurčki v steklu izhajajo iz organskih nečistoč, a v kozarcu predstavljajo zvezdno nebo in sprožijo našo domišljijo. Kremen in kamena strela sta se vedno povezovala z duhovnim svetom. V bio-dinamičnem kmetovanju ga uporabljamo kot kremen iz roga, ki pomaga pri povezovanju naših kulturnih rastlin s kozmosom. V kontrast kremenu pa uporabljamo glinene posode kot izolator, da energije ostanejo v pripravkih.


Ko nam kozarec mehko zdrsne v roko in se vanj nalije organsko vino, stečejo zgodbe vina, kozarca in nas.

Odločitev, ali bomo izbrali oranžno ali zeleno barvo kozarca, je odvisna od našega značaja in razpoloženja. Oranžna barva je topla, prav tako vgraviran kozmogram, ki predstavlja procese Sonca. Okus vina postaja topel, okrogel. Njemu nasproti je zelenkasti kozarec, ki nosi zgodbo in kozmogram vode, ki je simbol življenja. V zelenem kozarcu se vino osredotoči v samo točko izvira življenja.

Karafa, posoda za prezračevanje vina, je namenjena prebujanju organskega vina, ki je spalo v zaprti steklenici. Vrat karafe, po katerem steče vino, ima obliko Lunine orbite, ko ta potuje okoli Zemlje. Luna narekuje zakonitosti vode in tekočin. In vino je skoraj voda. Dno in bok karafe sta oblikovana z zemeljsko silo okroglosti. Zaradi masivnosti karafo držimo z eno roko za vrat, z drugo pa poprimemo dno. Ko zavrtimo vino v smeri zemeljskega vrtenja, nam vino poplesuje med rokama in nas tako kozmično poveže z vinom.

Zahvaljujem se enologu dr. Juliju Nemaniču in geomantu Marku Pogačniku, ki sta iz dveh zornih kotov ocenila in podprla moje oblikovno snovanje.


Kozarci in karafa so orodja, s katerimi odkrivamo našo duhovno in kulturno dediščino, povezano z vinom.

Rifnik carafe and wineglasses


The carafe and glasses were designed to improve the experience of enjoyment with organic wines. I designed them after noticing that wine develops differently according to the vessel it is poured into. These glassware products are based on organic design principles: organic materials and shape, derived from observing the nature where my family grows wine.


The glass stands crooked, sideways like our hill Rifnik, where indigenous people lived since later stone age (5.000 BC). The glass is designed to resemble a hand which was without a doubt the first receptacle people drank from. Besides different clay shards, the archeologists found only parts of two glass containers, made from glass paste around 700 BC. Green container had copper mixed in with chert, while the green one also had iron oxide.

Around the hill Rifnik there used to be lots of glassworks, which melted chert flour in their ovens and glassblowers created different containers with their exhales. Glassware factory in Rogaška Slatina has been open since 1665, all other glassworks, however, sadly extinguished their hearths. With help from Rogaška glassworks we were able to make our plans of specially made glasses and carafe come true.


The bubbles in the wineglass are derived from organic impurities, but in the glasses they represent starry night and ignite our imagination. Quartz and rock crystal have always been connected with spirituality. In bio-dynamical farming they are used as “chert from cow horn”, which helps connect our cultural plants to the cosmos. In contrast to that, we use clay as an isolator whenever we wish to contain those energies.


When the glass softly slips into our hand, and organic wine is poured into it, the stories of wine, glassware, and us flow.

The decision whether to choose the amber or the green color of glass depends on our character and mood. Orange color is warm and the engraved cosmogram represents the processes of sun. The taste of wine becomes warm and round. In contrast, the green glass carries the story and cosmogram of water, which is the symbol of life. In the green glass, the wine focuses on the origins of life itself.

Carafe, a vessel for decanting wine, is meant to aid in waking the organic wine, which slept in a bottle. The neck of the carafe, through which the wine flows, is modeled after the moon’s orbit around the Earth. The moon dictates the laws of water and liquids on earth, and wine is almost water. The bottom part of the carafe is designed to represent the earthly roundness and massiveness. Because of the size and heft of the carafe, we hold it with one hand on the neck and the other on the bottom. When we rotate it in the direction of the earth’s rotation the wine dances between our hands and cosmically connects us with the wine.

Many thanks to the oenologist Dr. Julij Nemanič and geomant Marko Pogačnik, who evaluated and supported my design from two angles.


Glasses and carafes are tools made to discover our spiritual and cultural heritage in relation to wine.
