Sand infused hand-blown glass
The design of this vessel draws inspiration from Iceland's volcanic Snæfellsnes peninsula, particularly the distinctive landscapes and literary importance of the region. In Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth,' the main characters explore a mysterious lost world inside a glacier located in this very peninsula. To symbolise the dormant volcano, the vessel is crafted in a smoky colour and incorporates obsidian sand, a naturally occurring glass found in gravel.
This vessel has been exhibited at Hub Under 35 at Italian Glass Weeks in Venice, 2022.
