THE VASES COLLECTION

These collectible design pieces are made-to-order basis, with each vessel individually hand-blown using the incalmo technique and natural sands. The sand can be incorporated as a tactile feature on the outer surface or placed between layers of glass. Variations in each piece are expected due to the handmade nature of the process. The production time for these unique pieces is four to six weeks.

The sands originate from Iceland, Southern and Aegean Coast of Turkey, resulting in different textures and patterns. These items are available for customisation with the sand of your choice.

SAND TO GLASS SERIES

When heated to 1,575 °C, sand becomes liquid. It is the detritus of pebbles, and pebbles are rocks that have been broken by pressure, baking sun, coursing water and frost shatter. When exposed to temperature and pressure, sand becomes glass. No matter its final form, every glass object contains centuries of history and deep connection to a physical landscape. In the Sand to Glass Series, sand is the both the raw material, and the glass itself. 

Sand to Glass series sources sands from different geographies in the World. Vases, Glassware and DUO collections are made with different sand to glass infusion techniques referencing to the cycle in nature. Sand infused glass shows different patterns and textures and also create a haptic experience to reconnect users back to the nature.

 

Scientifically, no sand in the world is the same to another beach: Each sand is time - location specific since the nature changes all the time. Our sands are in limited quantity, therefore could be used up to a number of editions.
