Fluid Motion

Fluidity by Angie Packer

Glass is an astonishingly beautiful and versatile material, especially in the artistic hands of Angie Packer.

As part of her De Montfort University graduation project Angie created Fluidity, a collection of glass carafes, bowls and tumblers inspired by the movement of water and the beauty of Venice.  The sinuous shape of the vessels and their wavy rims offer a sense of dynamic movement, whilst the blue tinted lumps protruding from their bottoms recall floating icebergs or perhaps crashing waves frozen in time.  Beautifully poetic and no doubt perfect for a whiskey or two.
