the collection is made using borosilicate glass, which is a type of durable glass containing boron trioxide. comprising jugs, tumblers and paperweights, the simple and elegant pieces are transformed by alessandra baldereschi into imaginary worlds of nature, resulting in a series of endearing and playful objects.

from colorful fish to a white owl, and even a turtle, the pieces are designed to bring users back to their childhoods, as once they are filled with liquid, the animal subjects become submerged in a fantasy scene. expanding on the first animal farm collection, the latest jugs also incorporate green and brown handles, reminiscent of seaweed, a tree branch, or a squirrel’s bushy tail.
