Web Description: 
Blurring the boundaries between sculpture and design, these vessels are inspired by glass created in Venice in the 1930s and 1940s by the Venetian architect and designer, Carlo Scarpa (Italian, 1906-1978). Philip Baldwin (American, b. 1947) and Monica Guggisberg (Swiss, b. 1955) admire Scarpa's cut vases and bowls, which introduce new principles of light and space into glass. The inciso (incised) cutting blurs the edges and softens the shine of the glass, allowing light to emanate from within.
