The New Craftsmen is delighted to share initial designs for ‘Glass Meadow’, a collaborative project between two masters of their craft: royal florist Philippa Craddock and acclaimed glass artist Jochen Holz. This is the first in a series of expert partnerships The New Craftsmen is instigating, bringing together makers and practitioners to create exceptional products.
‘Glass Meadow’ is an installation of 21 vessels made from free blown borosilicate 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. Each vessel is unique and possesses its own spontaneous energy enhanced by the display of carefully selected flowers. Creating a dance between fleeting beauty and the permanence of these durable glass objects.
The installation launches in March 2019 as part of our exhibition 'Botanic', The New Craftsmen will also host flower arranging workshops and events surrounding the collaboration. The installation will be available for sale as a whole and 6 of the vessels are repeatables.
