the designer created vases made of heavy, carefully handcrafted murano glass. light refracted through the twisted glass gives the objects a sense of wonder. the design plays further than just the material itself, appearing as sculptural pieces. the curved forms create intricate reflections, and give the glass a new dimensionality.
