Into the Flow

Inspired by the ocean's swirling, tumbling waves, Richard Glass designed this beautiful bowl. He handcrafts the "version of an abstract seascape" from layers of clear crystal and colored powder. As they heat up in the kiln, the materials twist and fold to create organic, ocean-like swirls and patterns. Once it cools, the piece is sandblasted, giving it a unique frosted finish that feels analogous to mist rising up from the sea. Whether you use it to serve your favorite dish or keep it displayed as a work of art, it gives your home a touch of deep blue elegance. Handmade in Devon, England.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“I love retracing the steps of previous generations of glassmakers. ... It’s a pleasure to keep this skill alive.”

Richard Glass's glassblowing studio is nestled in the small Devonshire town of Bovey Tracey in England. Together with two other designers and glassblowers, he can boast 70 years of experience working with glass. Their design inspirations often come from the beautiful Devon coastline combined with the directness and fluidity of hot glass itself. Their forms are often understated and organic.

We spoke with Richard, and we asked him, "Why glass?" Find out what he had to say on our blog.
