BLOW Table explores the limitations of glassblowing on a physical level. The conceptual design for the table comes from the free shape of a bubble. Placed across the top of the piece is a flat sheet of glass. What is shocking about it is the way that the large piece of blown glass and the classic translucent Venini blue are perfectly integrated.
