These objects were developed with the idea of utilising different glass types in order take advantage of the materials inherent qualities of transparency and reflection.

The simple geometric forms and precise mitre joints enables one to fully appreciate the properties of glass. Viewing the objects from different angles provides a changing viewing experience through the layering of glass and the reflections of their environment.

The glass cube was created as a side table and storage unit. The dark grey glass sides have mitred joints to enabling seamless surfaces. The dark side sides are contrasted with a central shelf made with low iron glass.
