Glass Meadow

Jochen Holz
£8,000
Glass Meadow is a conceptual installation by royal florist Philippa Craddock and glass artist Jochen Holz, featuring a landscape of 21 vessels crafted from free blown borosilicate glass.

A collaborative project between two masters of their craft: Philippa Craddock, best known for creating the floral displays for Prince Harry and Meghan's Windsor wedding, and acclaimed designer Jochen Holz who creates unique pieces from lamp-worked laboratory glass. Functional forms sit alongside playful decorative vessels of varying shapes and heights to create an undulating landscape of glass. When filled with water and flowers, the organic fluted vessels have a jewel like quality; suspending and refracting light and colour.


Material: Borosilicate glass.
Dimensions: 21 vessels. Height: from 8cm to 22cm. Please contact The New Craftsmen for further information.
Care Instructions: Each vessel is dishwasher safe.

Process

When conceiving the installation Jochen and Philippa sent several months in dialogue, visiting each others' studios and understanding their working practices. By fusing their expertise they wanted to create the perfect collection of vessels that would support the thoughtful gesture of a plant and flower presented in unison. From a single stem to whole arrangements the impetus was to create elegant and playful ways to bring nature into the home.
