London designer Pia Wüstenberg combines hand-turned wood, blown glass, and thrown pottery (or brushed metal), into beautiful vessels that look like nothing I’ve ever seen. I love the contrast between the polished glass and the rough tops. And my crush on the pieces deepened once I’d watched the video of one of these pieces being made. I tried to find the video I watched on YouTube (because I can’t ever seem to master the embedding of Vimeo videos), but I was unsuccessful. The video can be viewed here. Pay special attention to the fitting of the wood to the glass at about minute 5.5. It’s very dramatic!
