Paradise Stacking Vessels
To be launched at Maison & Objet, Paris, in September 2019
The new collection of two stacking vessels : Eve & Lilith.
A new material to play with, stoneware ceramic, combined with our timeless wood & glass.
A new collaboration with a ceramicist from Austria, a talented craftsman who is not only a technical thrower (it requires extreme accuracy to throw bowls to this large diameter), but also an alchemist developing his own glazes.
Ida is an audacious vase, with its folded rim and fluid curves it represents the borderless possibilities of glass as a material.
The liquid state of the glass (when being blown) is captured in Ida’s transformation into a crystalline and stable shape. Each piece is unique, free handblown by an artist glassblower in England.
More secrets about the making: we work with silver and gold colours (Green and Red tones). Colours with content of gold and silver have the quality of flashing silver or gold when deprived of oxygen. The outer rim of the Ida is originally the inside of the glass bubble when blown (so without oxygen), thus creating an interesting effect of colours. Look closer.
Sculpt Stacking Vessels
The very first U&U collection with cut glass. Both rough and refined, this assortment plays with the multiple metamorphosis glass grants as a material.
