Vintage and New

I had a very inspiring week, photographing the home of two glass blowers. It was teeny tiny but soooh sweet. See it on my interior design website

They very generously gave me a beautiful hand blown bowl which I had to photograph to show you, with pink tulips.

Christina is combining vintage or discarded crockery lids with her glass making to design new pieces that fit together. I haven’t seen any other glass artists working with the old and the new together before, I think it’s really inventive.

So, if anyone has broken your favourite vintage teapot or heirloom and the lid is still intact, please send to Christina Hellevik, c/o Christian Bjerregaard, Bakkevej 13, 8400 Ebeltoft, Denmark . I’m sure she’ll make good use of it. Here’s some of her designs.
