It is designed to bring harmonious and atmospheric shades to the everyday life. When light is gleaming trough the glass with icy texture, the shadow looks like moving water.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The starting point of the process has been to design objects that the user attaches emotional value to. Glasses are made to last for decades. The contrasts in nature and the way they create harmony is desired to be captured in the collection. The rhythm of the glass making process ensures that each object has a individual texture that mimics the movement of the frozen ice.

CHALLENGE:
The creative challenge was to combine Venetian tradition with modern simplicity in order to create harmony. The main technique in the process is crackling the glass. It was vital to find the perfect structure, so that the effect remain elegant and the surface is resistant. Durability and performance of the object were important goals in the process. Combination of techniques made the object extremely durable, which is important in drinking glasses designed to last for decades.
