Cut Vase M by Studio Prepa / PP Blower

  • W12cm x H9cm
  • Mold All by Mr and Mrs. Hira of Studio Prepa

A piece of art glass made using wooden molds that leave the impression of wood bark and end-grain on each vase. The wood is burned away, so a new mold has to be made for every piece resulting in a collection of unique works in many different sizes and shapes.

The process itself is inspired by Scandinavian “Ice glass” which was popularized by artists like Tapio Wirkkala and Timo Sarpaneva. Even the iconic “Savoy” vase designed by Alvar Aalto in the 1930s was originally made using a wood mold and then later made with a metal one to accommodate mass-production. The Hira’s took this original process, and enhanced it even more by lining bark to the interior of the mold to further romanticize the texture of wood grain. Now these vases look almost like they are the form of the log itself, instead of just the interior.

Made by a single artisan.
