84 Series by Bocci
A white glass bubble is captured inside a fine copper mesh basket and then plunged into hot, clear glass.
Air is blown in to gently push the white glass through the mesh, creating a delicate, pillowed form that is suspended inside the thick outer layer of clear glass.
Sometimes the copper mesh basket folds and crinkles making each piece unique.
