30s Wine Glass
Every glass piece is unique. 30s Wine Glass belongs same series as 30s cognac glass as it shares the same inspiration and shape. The bottom of the cup has two inner-blown arches forming a special flattened shape.
Granite Drinking Glass and Beer Glasses
My inspiration comes from Finnish nature such as rock formations and its texture.This glass texture is specially designed to look granite rock texture and its steady weight like the rock. Granite drinking glasses and beer glasses belong to the same series.
Sinfonia Glass Lamp
My inspiration for this Sinfonia ceiling lamp comes from spoons and water forms, especially water as liquid, steam and ice. The glass lamp looks like water dripping from the ceiling and light playing with them. Lamp spoons are as thin and light as possible.
