Making a case for CASED GLASS
I wanted to point out one of my favorite styles found in glass design. These hand blown pieces are examples of cased glass. The opacity is achieved by the artisan blowing a layer of white glass under the colored glass layer. This results in a vibrant saturated tone. The two stopper bottles in front are by Holmegaard (likely from the Carnaby line) and the triple gourd to their left is Italian from the 50's.
