Building upon the much loved Echo Lake design, that is inspired by the ice formations occuring over the waterfall at the Mill, we attempted the same technique on a few tree shapes and were excited about the result.
These eye catching wintery trees are the perfect balance of classic & contemporary design and make a statement for any centerpiece. The perfectly imperfect strands of molten glass are finely wrapped around each tree form to create this shimmering effect.
Celebrate the season, by creating a cluster or even a forest of mixed trees, for a grand tablescape, or mantle display that will be a delight through the winter months.
Upon, studying the water flowing over the waterfall at the mill and the ice that forms in the winter, we came up with these natural textures to capture in glass.
The glass blowers use fine strands of molten glass that are quickly wrapped around these cylindrical shapes to create a watery and icy effect.
As a beautiful series of winter hurricanes, the candlelight glows through the finer wrap texture in a way that is visually stunning.
We started with initial drawings but also worked closely with the glassblowing team, to arrive at the optimal amount of textural coverage. Each vessel turns out unique, and we embrace the irregularity that comes from the process of making them.
Perfectly, imperfect is a key characteristic of Echo Lake, and a hallmark of our ethos.
