Martino Gamper Cuttings Collection

€120 - €353

by J.HILL's Standard

This series features strong, intuitive marks confidently hewn out of the surface of lead crystal. The process of making cuts in this instance is less about applied decoration and closer to sculpture. The tactile crystal forms feel rugged and primitive in the hand; fingers naturally seek out the smooth hollows and crisp ridges of the cuts. Italian designer Martino Gamper is a natural interventionist - cutting to create shape and interest is characteristic of his work.

Just looking at their tumblers, flutes and carafes makes you thirsty for a glass of whatever your poison is.
