Tide & True

For maker Richard Glass, this eye-catching set is his own "version of an abstract seascape." Inspired by the ocean's swirling, tumbling waves, he crafts each glass from clear crystal, layering in bits of colored powder that twist and fold in the kiln. When the glassware cools, it's sandblasted, giving it a unique frosted finish that feels analogous to mist rising up from the sea. A wonderful gift for new home owners or coast-craving loved ones, it gives dinner parties a touch of deep blue magic. Handmade in Devon, England.

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

“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.
