XYLEN Tumblers

by Brad Copping

Bring a bit of nature to your tableware with these tumblers. Each blown-glass cup resembles a tree trunk with a cross-section of rings along the bottom! Round out your collection with a matching Xylen decanter.

Blown glass

approximately 8 x 8 x 8 cm

Artist statement: "I have always made work that reaffirms our ties to the natural world; that acknowledges we are part and parcel of that world. While these are concerns that I continue to deal with in all my work, the blown and carved glass work also explores form, surface and light, attempting to find an aesthetic balance in the objects – the rough line of the carving against the fluid form of the blown glass."
