Spotted and coveted last weekend at The Gardener in Berkeley: glass carafes by LA artist Nate Cotterman. Cotterman earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2007 before moving to LA, where he works as a gaffer (glassblower) for Joe Cariati Glass, among others, while running his own studio. Here are some favorite pieces from Nate Cotterman Glass.

Above: Flow Decanters come in seven distinct forms and are $135 each. They’re also for sale at The Gardener.

Above: For a collaboration with ceramic artist Lesley Anton, Cotterman created a set of custom drinking glasses.

Above: Dimple Glasses are $80 each.

Above: Handblown glass bowls; contact Nate Cotterman Studio directly for ordering information.

Above: The Piano Series was “inspired by vintage design and refined by modern aesthetics.” The Piano Table Lamp is available with a black waxed finish and an ivory shade (shown here) or a polished brass finish and gray shade; $1,400.

Above: The Piano Table Lamp has a three-stage dimmer.

Above: The Piano Sconce is $900.

Above: The Halo Sconce is $900.

We’re mad for glass: a few of our favorite studios include Malfatti Glass, Maureen Fullam, and Esque.
