Oval Encalmo Hand-Blown Glass Small Bowl

£340

Select Size

The small Oval Encalmo bowl is perhaps Stewart Hearn’s most signature style, favoured by tastemakers for its clarity, decorative element and functionality. The Encalmo technique – originating in Italy – involves the joining together of two separately blown bubbles, resulting in a clear definition where the two meet. It’s an incredibly complex method that requires great skill, something Hearn so modestly disguises with the artful simplicity of this piece’s form.

Master glassmaker Stewart Hearn graduated from Sunderland Polytechnic in 1986, and has taken London Glassworks from strength to strength since its 2002 inception. In his work, he explores form, colour translucency and weight, while celebrating ancient techniques such as the Encalmo technique – a highly complex Venetian glassblowing method where different glass sections are fused together.  Look out for time-honoured practices such as this in his designs, as well as the more unexpected pieces that offer a lens into his playful side.
