The Seaform Series
The Seaform sets conjure up associations with water and marine life without replicating them. Optic molds are used in the glassblowing process to create shell-like ribs, which increase the strength of the thin glass. Lines of color around the body emphasize their wave-like forms. Accented with writhing tendrils and tentacles, the Seaforms resemble living organisms.
“Glass itself is so much like water. If you let it go on its own, it almost ends up looking like something that came from the sea.”
