The Crystal Ball sculpture collection, as the name suggests, links the fragility of glass to the memory of a childhood game, the magical soap bubbles that were a cult in the 90s, hence the name of the collection.
The idea of the game, of the lightness, finds the child in these parts where the small bases in solid ash wood, sustain the great spheres of Pyrex, thus being to create a visual imbalance between fullness and emptiness, between fragility and strength. These spheres are the result of the antique art of Glass Makers. Any surface bumps and differences in colour must therefore be considered qualities.
Product Description: Vase structure in massive ash wood massive with a metal frame inside.
Spheres: Coloured Borosilicate Glass.
Sphere Finishings: Fixed olour combinations for vase type.
Note: These spheres are the result of the antique art of Glass Makers. Any surface bumps and differences in colour must therefore be considered qualities.
