‘The Ripple Project’, A Look at the Beauty of Light Through Hand-Blown Glass


The Ripple Project
, by London-based design studio Poetic Lab, is an examination of the effect of light when projected through a rotating, hand-blown glass down. The result is an ever-changing pattern that appears to mimic the movement of water.

The designers realised that the beauty of glass lies in the uneven surface resulted from the traditional mouth-blowing process. While the craft skill freezes the beauty of glass in time, the elegant and precise rotation brings the flow of material back to life, as if the dome exists with an uncertainty.
