i’m jealous of andreas engesvik



Oooh, a forest of glass! And those gorgeous colors… modern, but with an oddly familiar feel. I’m sure my grandmother had objects around her house in exactly the same palette. Anywho, I digress. This beautiful work is titled “The Woods” by Oslo based artist/designer Andreas Engesvik, and was created in collaboration with Norwegian design studios StokkeAustad. I love this description:

“The inspiration was found in the forests and the lights of the North. A tree changing colours and transparency through the seasons is a fascinating process which was captured in this glass object.”

Kinda makes you want to see Norway in all four seasons, doesn’t it? Hm, well I can’t give you that, so the least I can do is show you a tiny bit of the process behind these pieces:

Sigh.
