More about Glass
A medium for drinking, brewing, preserving and storing, glass is a versatile material for functional vessels across our collection. It forms a strong visual language in drinkware and hosting, where we have highlighted decanters with a strip of rose gold, dyed serving bowls midnight blue, or engineered pink tea pots to withstand high temperatures.
Our adventures in glass originate in the lab, with the curiosities of conical shapes and scientific apparatus. Ultra-simple and rigorously functional, the traditional lab kit is an underlying influence across our table top glassware.
Returning to an experimental vase created in Tom’s workshop in the 80s, we have started to experiment with the pliable nature of borosilicate. Compared to conventional glass making with its expensive, complex and dangerous equipment, borosilicate is a material that can even be manipulated on a gas stove at home – the perfect material for the minimalist.
Lighting pieces like our Flask range are made from hand-blown glass, using different thicknesses and angles to refract light, inspired by molten globules of glass that have come straight from the furnace ready to be blown. Some of our pendants distort the light as it filters through the dense raw glass with ripples and shades, to give a magical luminosity, while others are inspired by the sharp functional geometry of chemical laboratory glassware. These lights are mouth-blown and are exceptionally hardwearing and satisfyingly heavy.
