Wicker Glass Bowl is a unique product, handmade by placing glass mass in a form made of traditionally plaited wicker basket.
Every bowl is different, thanks to the uniqueness of the wicker plait and the endless possibilities of handcrafting.
It is a reference to and a new take on a traditional, nearly forgotten craft.
The bowl can hold both food and small objects.
Awarded the 1st place in the Mazda Design Award 2019 competition for the most interesting Polish project of the last 3 years.

Flexible wicker has been used as a natural mould for hot glass. Each bowl is unique pointing out the value of manual labor. Visible fingerprints, air bubbles and all imperfections reveal origin and remind of resources.

— What does simplicity mean to you?
Simplicity is understandable in its nature and holistic. It is always there offering us the feeling of balance and relaxation in daily life.
— What do notions like timelessness or durability mean to you?
The measure of durability is not a solid performance that will endure for centuries, but the ability to a beautiful aging and renewing. Things should be in a constant cycle of life and death - just like us. Timeless is when it was, it is, and it will be the current one, for us and somebody else.
