Vessel Series

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.

Stampo Cups

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!

Higgins Mobiles

When one icon teams up with another amazing things are bound to happen. Such is the case when the legendary Higgins Studio created these amazing handmade enamel-fused glass mobiles for Jonathan Adler. One of the best displays of mid-century modern design I’ve seen in recent memory. {via Cool Hunting}

Ingegerd Råman.

I first saw Ingegerd Råman’s beautiful glasswork in a photo on sweet paul’s blog and emailed him to get the scoop. I’m in love with the clean lines of Råman’s work and the seemingly large amount of thought put into each and every piece despite their minimalism. (The product shots below hardly do the work justice – you almost have to imagine them on your own table.)
