The SkLO float vessels are organic spheres of Czech glass with broken flame polished mouths. They are entirely free‑blown, produced without the use of moulds to shape them. The tops are given a slight ripple where they are dipped twice into the molten glass, and the mouths broken from the blowpipe and fire polished while hot. These subtle details elevate the simple sphere to a unique thing of beauty that speaks entirely of the craft of glass blowing. The float vessels come in 5 sizes, and each size is available in two different colors, making up two different color palettes. The color palettes reflect the idea that floats work best in groups, with the color palettes carefully curated to allow for many possibilities.
All glass dimensions are approximate – handblown glass dimensions vary by nature and intent.
