Jonathan Hansen brings the atmospheric depth of the sky down to earth and onto crystal in his collection, In the Clouds… The pieces exude a material clarity, evoking a boundless space and a fresh, contemplative lightness.
Each piece in the collection is handmade and slightly different – a tactility that can only be felt in the perfection and imperfection of this craft. The lead free crystal vessels are mouth blown and hand engraved… made by master craftsmen of the Bohemian crystal tradition in the Czech Republic. The pieces are available in both clear and dark grey.
“A sky without clouds is a meadow without flowers.” Henry David Thoreau
