Glassmateria Reimagines the Bud Vase With the Slimline Collection

Costa Rica-based designer Natalia Phillips who runs Glassmateria Studio designed the Slimline Vase collection as a modern-day take on the bud vase. Inspired by her childhood imagination and perception of her surroundings, Natalia plays with different heights and shapes to crease slim glass vases. She uses the fused glass technique which allows her to join, superimpose and shape the glass using a special kiln that reaches extremely high temperatures. The result is a playful, geometric collection of vases that can be used separately or placed together to compose a colorful landscape.
