Hand-formed pâte de verre glass bowl in pale gray. Granular texture and sparkle on exterior.
Jess Panza, founder of L.A.-based Verre, uses a traditional French technique called pâte de verre. For this collection, “crushed glass is hand-molded into round bowls, then cooked to perfection to give each one a granular sparkle,” she says. “We basically approach the glass as if we were in a kitchen, baking and creating things from scratch. No two bowls are alike, but they go together beautifully."
