Medusa fruitbowl

The natural and dynamic shape of the jellyfish (called “Medusa” in Italian) is the inspiration to design this handmade fruit bowl which was presented during september 2015 at IDA an art and design fair in Rio de Janeiro. 

Starting from a cylinder of glass, through a long process of heating and forming of the material, the walls fold on themselves. In a not entirely controllable way, because of the different fluidity of the material according to the temperature, some ruffles are naturally created, different for each piece, thus remembering even more the movement of jellyfish, and practically making each fruitbowl a unique piece.
