From the Artecnica website: "With the help of Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization providing assistance to artisans worldwide, Artecnica collaborated with Guatemalan craftsmen to bring Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje’s designs to the market. Combining old-world craftsmanship and sophisticated design, each tranSglass® vessel is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece."
these lovely vases combine two of my favorite things: flowers + wine!
