CRAFTSMANSHIP / PRODUCTION: by the skilled craftsmen with the glass knowhow of acclaimed glass company Nouvel Studio, Mexico City
This glass vase originates from a glass-blowing project, by Gala Fernandez, realised with the skilled glass-blowers of acclaimed glass manufacturer NOUVEL Studio in México City. The colour and crystal quality of the glass are remarkable and highly rated. The liquid glass is blown into various everyday objects from Mexican markets and birdcages serving as the moulds for this process. The objects are a result of the interaction of the hot fluid glass with the moulds. In this case the beautiful marks of a palm basket are left in the surface of the glass.
