One of a Kind: Fuso, the Crystal Collection by Ries

Crystal, like glass, has a very interesting characteristic in which its composition and behavior can be cataloged as both solid and liquid. It is called a vitreous state. We often relate glass recipients to pure geometries, which fall in the category of what in math is called solids of revolution. The designers believe these morphologies generally lack self-identity as they tend to make the contained liquid look very rigid.

This collection of handblown glassware pictures an intermediate moment between two physical states of matter in order to give the contained liquid new and unexpected forms.

As they are compressed by gravity after being blown in their molds, each piece is different and unique.
