A limited edition collection of glass ware designed exclusively for Secondome gallery, presented in Salone del Mobile 2012, Milan.

 

Vessel - Kirsty Minns

This hand blown clear glass vase was inspired by a fascination with the strange and freakish scientific instruments from the nineteenth century. The smaller parasite vase and candle holder complete the set to create a 'communicating vessel' where the water balances out to be the same level in all of the containers regardless of their shape and volume.

 

Vasone - Giorgia Zanellato

A Vase made in three different parts intersected between them. The central part is sand blasted to underline the element’s diversity.

Triangolo - Mariana Fernandes

Using simple geometric shapes, this glass vase plays with a strange idea of perspective. Inside versus outside. Nearer contrasts with further, above meets below.

 

Flood - David Raffoul

Two houses were flooded and heavily damaged by the storm. A flower grew from the heart of each house and through its chimney. The final result was a beautiful landscape of many flowers, each one hinting the presence of a house. 

 

Necklaces - Catarina Carreiras

"Necklaces" is a pair of two or a set of three vases thrown together like gemstones in a gold chain. It can be hanged or placed on a table, enhancing the beauty of a bare plain white wall or adding a distinctive detail to a meticulous composition. And because all necklaces are portable ornaments, it is the perfect container to take a flower and go for a walk. 

 

Uplifting - Dean Brown

The ritual of drinking together is synonymous with lifting the spirits. The contents of the carafes - Chianti, Prosecco, balsamic vinegar and olive oil -  are at the centre of the concept elevated in height and status, whilst the transparency of the glass fades into the setting. The impression is of a levitating liquid, raised above the surface of the table, celebrated and for celebrating

 

Uccia Ina - Valentina Carretta

Several details have been taken from traditional kitchen containers and tools. Napoletana coffee pots and metal oil containers are hidden in the shapes of these carafes. The typical handles, the spouts and the conic necks are now generating new shapes, suggesting different ways of handling and pouring the liquids or simply allowing the coffee to filter. You can use them to serve a special cup of tea, coffee, milk or other variation of drinks.
