Jewellery for I Do

Jewellery for I Do

We’ve create a collection of jewellery for I Do, a wedding jewellery brand with boutiques across China.

Including an engagement ring and wedding bands, inspiration is taken from frozen flowers and frosted branches.

The diamonds are to me just like small shards of ice, which are eternal.

Garland blooms again in 2019 and our new online shop

First available in 2002, we've relaunched the Garland this summer!

A design classic included in the permanent collection of MoMA New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum London, we're proud to be producing the Garland ourselves to ensure it can continue to flower and delight.

We’ve also launched a new online shop where you can buy a selection of our designs. We're starting with the Garland but will add other items such as lighting and tableware.

New Glass Now

We have been selected to be part of New Glass Now, an exhibition at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York.

New Glass Now features objects, installations, videos, and performances from the last 3 years by 100 artists of 32 nationalities working in more than 25 countries.

Taking place from 12 May 2019 to 5 January 2020, it is the third exhibition in a series organised by the Museum to survey contemporary glass on an international scale.

Coinciding with the opening of the exhibition, the Museum will publish the 40th anniversary issue of New Glass Review, its annual exhibition-in-print of contemporary glass.

An Accelerated Culture at Friedman Benda

An Accelerated Culture at Friedman Benda

Two of our pieces have been included in An Accelerated Culture, an exhibition curated by Libby Sellers and Brent Dzekciorius for the gallery Friedman Benda.

The exhibition, which brings together a selection of the most progressive contemporary designers from the so-called ‘Generation X’, is an investigation into any shared ideologies and beliefs that emerge from such a disparate cohort.

Through key examples and representations from more than twenty designers and design studios from eight (predominantly European) countries, the exhibition demonstrates the full breadth of this generation with an in-depth survey of design rarely seen outside of a museum context.

See the show from May 3 – June 8 2019 at Friedman Benda, New York.

Light Drops and Radiant Table Light at Euroluce

Light Drops and Radiant Table Light at Euroluce

This year in Milan it was all about light.

Our Luminous Reflections components for Swarovski have been reimagined as Light Drops and Radiant Table Lights and were launched at Euroluce.

I was given the opportunity to design my own crystal shapes and to create chandeliers with these new crystals. I was interested in using crystal to make a “soft light” effect, a quality of light you can see in a snowy landscape or as dancing light reflections on a lake.

Highlight of the Night

Highlight of the Night

Over the summer we’ve been bashing clay with a rock, firing up the kiln to 830 degrees, experimenting with glass and learning to weld. The resulting light, chair and pair of vases created exclusively for Future Heritage went on display during Decorex.

Highlight of the Night began from a desire to make a cast glass disc as a light.

Meandering Chair is an experiment in using a minimal amount of material to make an elegant seat.

For the With or Without You vases engraved glass is given a weightless quality.
