Crystal, as glass, has a very interesting characteristic in which its composition and behaviour can be catalogued as both solid and liquid. It is called "vitreous state".
We often relate glass recipients to pure geometries, which fall in the category of what in math is called "solids of revolution". We believe this morphologies generally lack of self identity as they tend to make the contained liquid look very rigid.
This collection of hand blown glassware seek to picture an intermediate moment between two physical states of matter in order to give the contained liquid new and unexpected forms.
As they are compressed by gravity after being blown in their molds, every piece is different and unique.
Produced at Cristalería San Carlos, Santa Fe province, Argentina.
