An elegant homage to the birch trees around Vermont’s Silver Lake, this textural handblown glass bowl makes a stunning centerpiece.
Replete with artistically pleasing asymmetry and available in three distinct sizes, the Silver Lake Serving Bowl makes a stunning addition to any table arrangement or household display. Our Silver Lake glassware captures the essence of pristine Vermont winters, boasting an elaborately crafted rippled texture that draws upon the heart of Vermont winters, with pieces that capture the texture and light reflection of natural ice formations found in streams and cliffs. Each piece is handmade by our skilled artisans in our glassblowing studios.
What makes a second?
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.
