Thames Glass Collection
The Thames Glass Collection from Lulu Harrison includes a jug, 2 vases and 2 unique glasses. This special glassware is made using local and waste materials sourced in and around the River Thames, including local river sands, wood ashes and waste quagga mussel shells sourced from Thames Water. Inspired by vessels throughout glass history, this collection is made using a sand local to London which was thought to have been used in the medieval period.
Lulu is a Geo Alchemist Glass Artist and researcher in sustainable material development, she creates glass artefacts inspired by primitive glass making and with as little impact on the environment as possible. By combining crafts, design, and science, her work seeks to redefine the meaning of ‘luxury.’
