Double Barrel Perc by ROOR
ROOR has been making water filters for about 23 years. It was founded 1995 by Martin Birzle, a German glass-blower. This piece can be purchased from Elev8 Glass Gallery for $500. One thing I learned while doing this review is that ROOR makes glass no thinner than 5mm thick. Also, I found out that ROOR is made by one particular artist, while ROOR Tech is produced by a team of blowers. This is why standard ROOR has a signature and ROOR Tech does not have a signature. Many of the new ROOR will eventually be coming in special packaging so you can avoid the counterfeits on the market.
Well, let’s get to the review:
Functionality – 7.08
|DOES IT WORK FOR HOW IT IS DESIGNED?||7.5|
|EASE OF USE||7.2|
|HOW DID IT FEEL IN YOUR HANDS? (ERGONOMIC VALUE)||7.7|
|DID I GET WATER IN MY MOUTH WHEN FILLED TO PROPER LEVEL AND A STANDARD HIT||5.9|
Overall Quality- 8.0
|HOW ARE THE WELDS WELDED?||8|
|ARTISANAL PERSPECTIVE (FUNCTIONAL ART/PRODUCTION)||6.3|
This based on FUNCTIONALITY + PRICE IS GOOD + ARTISTIC VALUE that I believe.
Skill Set- 7.3
The skill set is what I believe it take a blower to have in order to make the piece. The harder the piece is to make, the higher the number.
Overall Score- 7.21
THE GRADE – 90%
