Inspired by the conch shells off the shores of Bristol, Rhode Island, the elegant lines and intuitive angles of this handblown hurricane call to mind the Golden Ratio, at its mysterious intersection of geometry and nature. Quintessentially New England in its graceful strength.
The heat of the room, the hum of the furnace, the weight of the tools... a glassblowing studio is itself a living, breathing thing, in which even the world’s most masterful craftspeople can expect variations in the work they create.
Unlike mass-produced design, handmade pieces yield divergent outcomes, owing to even the smallest differences in conditions. A change in breath, a flick of the wrist or a shift of foot can and will affect the final product.
Unique beauty lives in imperfection. Each Seconds piece captures a moment of the human hand at work, where unique conditions lead to slight variations and differences, preserved in glass. The quality and functionality aren’t inferior to firsts, but rather, a thoughtful option for those who value character and an organic quality to their household objects.
• Seconds are priced up to 25% off the first quality price.
• All sales are final on second quality glass and pottery.
• Gift wrapping is not available on seconds items.
