Artful GlassAuthor:Abigail Stone
I regret not taking a glass-blowing class in college. Admittedly I’m clumsy as an ox, and being in a room of molten glass and delicate finished pieces sounds like a recipe for disaster, but I do love the medium. Be it hefty and thick or impossibly thin and weightless, opaque like milkglass or completely transparent, there’s a beauty to its incongruities.
Instead though, I filled my time with plenty of art history classes. Those 101 auditorium slideshows came back to me as I started compiling some of my favorite glass pieces from around the web for this post. They seemed… familiar. Have a look:
Sagaform’s glass globe tealight holders
Trio sugar and creamer set from Iittala
Madinat as-Salam I, by Frank Stella
Orion stacking bowls from Michael Kramer
Art influencing design? It wouldn’t be the first time.
