The Press Series is designed to catch and refract light. It is made to last forever, from the thickest industrially pressed glass. This bold series consists of heavyweight two pendants, vases, bowls and candleholders in various sizes. They’re manufactured by dropping large globs of molten glass at a temperature of 1200 degrees and pressed with a mould of immediately familiar silhouettes.
