Cloudy Butterflies by Claudia Schiffer
Description Conceived in collaboration with Claudia Schiffer, these two vases and single centrepiece incorporate an ancestral technique from the world of handmade glass, widely used in the Middle Ages – the incalmo – reinventing it in pieces with a very contemporary aesthetic. This show us that by acknowledging the expertise of the artisans, our past, our culture and roots, and by building new things on these foundations, we are able to draw guidelines for a future rich in knowledge and meaning. These pieces are blown and handled without a mould, which makes hot-melting the various colours horizontally then fixing them in the right position more difficult. The quality of the material used, the rigour and mastery with which the piece is made, the 100% manual work, make this piece special and unique, a product of excellence.
