The highly textured, organically shaped Patara Vase is made of hand-blown and hand-cut glass. Produced by German-based GUAXS, renowned for the sophistication and high quality of its distinctive design, the vase explores the nuanced relationship between form, surface texture and color.
At GUAXS we try to develop sculptural objects, that change the atmosphere of a room and have an effect on the people around them. We draw our inspiration from forms of nature and cultural artefacts, always influenced by personal experience gathered on travels, intuition and close observation. Our objects are made of authentic and sustainable materials, manufactured by hand following practical knowledge and handicraft techniques developed over centuries. Each piece shows the variable traces of human work on its surface, creating interplay between sculptural form and texture. More specifically, the design of our glass objects combines these aspects with a nuanced and strong color impression, leading to a smooth and natural appearance. This allows them to integrate well into any architecture, while remaining something special and magic at the same time.
