Check out this weeks feature artisan, Tsunami Glassworks.
Tsunami Glassworks creates fresh and modern blown glass sculpture, installations, decorative and functional objects.
Their dedicated design team creates and fabricates glass products that reference sculpture as well as incorporate utility by combining organic forms with unique colours and a tactile finish. They create products with the idea of bringing art into daily life. The idea of creating scale through multiples is an important component to our products as they can be shown individually or clustered and grouped together to create a custom sculpture.
Tsunami Glassworks mandate is to create high quality, gorgeous glass pieces all the while making their designers and craftspeople available to their clients; achieving balance between the art of glass design, and manufacturing.
Custom feature gift: Drape, Mini 9″H, Cherry/turquoise etched; DRAPE is a sculptural hand blown glass vase that is made using the fluid nature of hot glass to show movement, capturing gentle folds as the piece cools during the glassblowing process.
