Antler Bud Vase
Based in Portland, Oregon, Esque Studio's captivating glass-blown creations blur the line between functional object and fine art. With artists Justin Parker (who's created work for Maya Lin and Kiki Smith) and Andi Kovel (who's exhibited with Claes Oldenburg and Damien Hirst) at the helm, we'd expect nothing less. The Antler Bud Vase is made by sculpting hot glass into a branch-like shape. Formed in a wind-powered furnace, which produces zero CO2 emissions, each handcrafted piece is one of a kind which, the creators say, gives their glass character and soul.
