“Elements” Decanter III

Designer: Scholten & Baijings

A rich assemblage of graphic markings defines the “Elements” series of lead crystal. Cuts and textures of varying depth and intensity are employed across glasses to create a landscape of layered pattern that is fresh and seductive; a whole new take on the decoration of cut crystal.

After creating an extensive range of cuts, Scholten & Baijings built these up on individual glasses and over glass typologies. Working with ‘palettes’ (although these are more frequently of colour or material) is key to this Dutch design duo’s work.

The beauty of the “Elements” series is that each glass, alone, is a desirable object but together the mixture of designs is something very different altogether.

This piece is one example from J Hill’s Standard’s “Elements” series. Most of the other pieces in the collection, as well as those from their “Cuttings” series, have been acquired for the Contemporary Collection of Design & Craft.
