Scarabee Stacking Vessel


Designed and prototyped in 2017

H. 90cm dia. 40cm
Dimensions are approximate, due to the handmade nature of the materials

Materials : handblown glass (Czech Republic), handspun metal (England), handturned wood (Finland)
The materials then come to our warehouse in Germany where they are fitted and assembled.

Challenge : scale! The glass requires our largest two-part wooden mould, weighing in excess of 100kg. To blow this piece, we need a team of four to five experienced glass blowers, a large gas torch to heat the glass and a cooling lehr with the capacity to hold the glass for the cooling period of 48 hours.

Glass colours 2019 : Blue, Peach, Black, Red
