More than jewelry! – Plate


Veronika Šola x Carolin Dieler

glass plate
ø 17 cm/ 1 cm high
clear/ green bullseye glass

The idea that jewelry can stand apart from the body was the key idea for Veronika and me when we designed this limited series of objects. We wanted to create something together and break out of our comfort zone of metal, we were both fascinated by the materiality of glass. Glass is fragile yet durable, it can be shaped and used in almost any way. Light and colour are magically attracted to its surface.

In our joint work we created unique and functional glass objects. With the support of Cristallerie Schönberg from Rheinbach, we were able to realise our ideas. As a professional and experienced glassblower crafted the glasses and carafes we designed, we were particularly interested in additionally experimenting with the slumping method, as this gave us the freedom to shape a mould by hand that is then used to melt sheets of glass into. We love the idea of design blending with experimental and intuitive handcraft.

The plates are food-safe and dishwasher-safe.
Please note that despite all this, this is glass and should be treated as such.

In case of damage, please contact me or Veronika by email. As durability was important to us, this particular type of glass is repairable.

Limited edition of 10 plates, 10 bowls and 5 spoons.
