Captivated by these half-glass, half-knitted vases developed by Italian designer, Sofia Lazzeri and Swiss designer, Alexandra Denton. The collaborative project is appropriately called Innesti, “the Italian word for grafting, a botanic technique used to join tissue from one plant with another, with the purpose of creating new varieties.”

“Their project aims to enhance the voices of the materials and stimulate an aesthetic experience that celebrates contrasts, knowledge and tradition.”

Yoshiko Minagawa


Discovered these intricate glasswork on Japanese artist index and web magazine, Panorama. The artist, Yoshiko Minagawa, uses the lampwork glass technique to create these fantasy sculptures and miniature insects. Primarily self-taught she mastered her techniques by attending workshops and training camps abroad and by repetitive practice.
