Joe Cariati

I recently came across these beautiful decanters designed and made by Joe Cariati who is based in Los Angeles. All the items are handmade using a Venetian glassblowing technique and are extremely thin so that the light passes through them. He says: "I'd love to see them float off the table". What originally drew me to his pieces were the clean, simple shapes of his decanters, but I also realised how much colour plays an important part in what he does. This becomes apparent when you see the decanters placed together. Where they overlap, new colours are formed to create interesting new shapes. You can see his work here.
