Tangram

hand cut collection

  • the vases were inspired by the ancient Chinese game Tangram
  • the designer says to the collection: "I stretched the geometric Tangram shapes into third dimensional and began toying with a few triangles and blocks and formed them from other blocks and cubes. I began to develop geometric vases, composed of different volumes mutually turned slightly to each other. By pulling and stretching the diagonal and sharp angles, I created a coloured game of vistas and colour transitions. The vases are strictly geometric, uncharacteristic for hand-cut glass precisely straight, and the gorgeous Moser colour blending itself into a beautiful rainbow. I tried to save the shapes so that I could revel in the colours."

The secrets of work by hand

Crystal with tradition from 1857

Each and every Moser art piece requires hours, days, weeks and often months of hand processing in the hands of our master glassmakers. The secrets of glassmaking are traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Becoming a master glassmaker requires years of practice, a great deal of talent and considerable strength: – the glassmaker must hold vases or bowls weighing tens of kilograms while they work.
