Each year, NYCxDESIGN takes over Manhattan, heading to every borough to showcase the design disciplines that enhance our lives daily. To celebrate the 2019 event, we partnered with the online magazine, Sight Unseen. Their editors curated a collection of exclusive, hand-blown pieces by 8 of their favorite glass artists. The collection—as well as a selection of vintage glass objects—debuted during a small reception at 4510/SIX in New York’s Hudson Yards.
The artists include Andrew O. Hughes, Balefire, Bianco Light & Space, Jeanne Messing, Mark Pavlovits, Sophie Lou Jacobsen, Trueing, and Upstate. From angular vases to speckled jars, the works show the varied personalities and design approaches of the artists. The pieces are available online and in New York only for a limited time.
