These fused glass baubles from Lone Mine remind me of my favorite pre-school snack – layered Jell-o! Each jewel is painstakingly formed first in a kiln and then ground by hand, featuring naturally occurring bubbles and a highly polished surface for a one-of-a-kind piece. I think my favorite is the one directly below, the remnants of a melted snowcone come to mind – yum!

I admit it, I’m a romantic at heart. And when I read that Samuel Wilkinson’s Vessel Series was inspired by a ship in a bottle it made me love it all the more. The blown glass fixtures were created specifically to show off the Plumen 001 bulb, a beauty in its own right. When lit the glass illuminates, showing off the bulb rather than concealing it. The Vessel Series consists of three pieces, each of which features a cut that allows it either to be suspended or set on a surface.
Notice anything curious about these Stampo Cups? They were each kicked in the bottom with a boot during the molding process, leaving an imprint of the sole. These colorful glasses by Niels Cosman are each hand-formed and entirely unique, not bad for getting kicked in the butt!
