Glass Incense Holder

Valentina Cameranesi Sgroi

By forming a close relationship with artisans Massimo and Federico Pagnin at a small family-owned studio in Paderno Dugnano, Sgroi pushes the boundaries of borosilicate glass (a technique usually reserved for scientific instruments), manipulating and deforming the material. This series, a delicate liquid-like group of vessels, offer various fantastical forms.

A vessel with oversized aperture, in the form of a huge splash, acts to encourage the smoke of your favorite incense which stands, like stigma, in the central incision of the bowl.
