New Work: Letter Plates

Inspired Work:

During the summer months, sometimes it's hard to get going on new work. It's hot and beautiful out there and it's very hot in the studio these days. Work is coming along though, and fresh ideas are sprouting. Below is our first attempt at designing letter plates for my molds. Carving out font work is harder than we originally thought but actually very satisfying.

The inspiration for this new work is directly linked to our love of early mass production of glass. Which you may have noticed in the Collected series we have been posting. Click to see the collection of bottles uploaded so far.
