hand cut vase

  • few words from the author: "Contemporary art, including design, is often inspired by itself, i.e. by what has already appeared and been used. My inspiration comes from the environment around me. I create unusual statues of the world I know and, consequently vases or other objects that resemble natural formations, but also manmade objects, appear in my designs. In a world awash with the habitual, dressed in the uniform of convention, I strive to bring a delicate protest of form. It’s something like a greeting from an unknown land."

The secrets of work by hand

Crystal with tradition from 1857

Each and every Moser art piece requires hours, days, weeks and often months of hand processing in the hands of our master glassmakers. The secrets of glassmaking are traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Becoming a master glassmaker requires years of practice, a great deal of talent and considerable strength: – the glassmaker must hold vases or bowls weighing tens of kilograms while they work.
