Gravity Drops, a glass blown carafe designed by Vanessa Mitrani makes an ingenious use of balance from its wooden base.
"Gathered” by using a long rod - or cane - in the furnace where it is melted, the glass never stops flowing. In order to get the right amount to be blown, the rod must be continuously turned so as to avoid the gathered glass leaking onto the ground.
Vanessa Mitrani has inherited from her mother, a lab researcher, a passion for animals as well as the love to experiment and «to do». A student at ENSAD (Paris Decorative Arts University) specialising in furniture design, she happily escapes the classrooms to experience craft techniques in workshops, including glass techniques. It is therefore by «doing» that the designer started working with glass, her professional love affair.
