Ida - Pink
Ida - Pink
Ida is an audacious vase, designed by Pia Wüstenberg as this end of year capsule edition.
Ida represents the challenge of working with the possibilities of glass as a material: first its liquid process when blown, and afterwards its transformation into a crystallised shape, once cooled down.
The glass is freehand blown and shaped when hot, which gives freedom to a creative outlined hazard. The results are the folded rim and fluid curves, characteristics of Ida.
Each piece is unique, free handblown by an artist glassblower in England.
Dimensions : H. 22-24cm, dia. 15-16cm
Little + : the U&U bird is stamped at the bottom of the glass.
Each Ida comes into a White box and a U&U tote-bag, the perfect assortment under the Christmas tree.
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.
