Butterflies Under Glass

Posted by on November 3, 2011

These beautiful glasses are hand made by Tina Tsang of Undergrowth Design in London.

The glasses have laser cut messages in a bubble within the bowl of the glass.  The message magnifies when liquid is in the glass.  She has several choices, or you can commission your own message.

This is the kind of thing that I love.  It is an outstandingly beautiful, unique product that injects a little bit of art into our lives.

From her website:  “She enjoys making products that interact with the user on an emotional level making objects of desire of an heirloom quality that we can keep and treasure.”

That is pretty much my criteria for any new object that I bring into my home.  Something I desire (for its beauty or usefulness) of heirloom quality (will this still be here for my niece in 50 years?).
