For his contribution to FoodMarketo, Marco took oranges as a starting point and decided to marry the most mundane with fine Lobmeyr mouthblown glass. The orange net, hardly regarded as a thing of interest, does indeed have an interesting texture. And when used as a template for sandblasting, it leaves a wonderfully graphic, even three-dimensional-looking ‘footprint’, one recognizes immediately.
The fact that the ornament only appears partially like a shimmer and is never completely symmetrical, gives the object an instant liveliness and freshness underpinning its citrus inspiration. The Alphblast glasses are made using mouthblown glass (drinking setAlpha by Lobmeyr, designed in 1952 by Hans Harald Rath), and sandblasted. Simple and Elegant!
