Crystal, as glass, has a very interesting attribute which makes it both solid and liquid in its vitreous state. However, we often associate glass recipients with pure geometries, what is known as “solids of revolution” in mathematics. Picollo and Altgelt, founders of RIES, believe that these forms generally lack self-identity as they tend to make the contained liquid look rigid. This collection of hand-blown glassware seeks to imagine an intermediate moment between two physical states of matter in order to give the contained liquid new and unexpected shapes.
