Penguin Jug in Grey & Red

£230
Penguin Jug in Grey & Red by Jochen Holz features an grey coloured body with a red handle, fused together using a complex Venetian Incalmo technique. Jochen's 'Incalmo' range of glassware is produced using a venetian technique where two elements with different colours are blown to be joined together in a single object. The pieces are free-blown from borosilicate - a heat resistant and durable glass, resulting in organic, unique pieces. Each piece is a one-off with its own unique form.

Process

These pieces are made using a complex Venetian technique known as Incalmo. Glass segments, usually of different colours, are simultaneously blown to the correct size and thickness before being joined together. Requiring expert control, each separate piece must fit perfectly to create a unified, organic form.
