Ukrainian industrial designer and artist Kateryna Sokolova create stunning melting glass vases. Melting glass vases can be done using a process called glass slumping or glass fusing. This involves heating the glass to a temperature where it becomes pliable and can be shaped, and then allowing it to cool and solidify in the desired form.
GUTTA is a sublime series of sculptural vases that pay tribute to Ukrainian blown glass, created by Kateryna Sokolova. She poetically uses the half-melted forms of her pieces to transmit the sensation of frozen movement.
In her words “The Gutta vases, by Noom’s co-founder and chief designer, Kateryna Sokolova, aim to explore the unique properties of glass and create simple yet remarkable objects that evoke the sensation of frozen movement. Made by local glassmakers in one of Ukraine’s main cultural centers, Lviv, the vases are both very modern in their shape but steeped in history with their ancient methods and techniques of blown glass work.”
