Olive Crystal Vase Collection

DESIGN AND PRODUCTION Brina Steblovnik

Named after the slang term for the type of grinder called “olive”.

Much of the author's work, including this project, relates to constant efforts to maintain and develop the skills of manual glass design, which are gradually being lost to robots. These invaluable skills and processes such as hand grinding, engraving and glass blowing, which masters have been perfecting for many years, are difficult to redevelop once they are lost. The Olive vase collection is made by hand, by grinding in a sophisticated technique with carborundum grinding heads.


Material crystal and opal glass
