Clartés

Waterfall, Moscow

A custom glass sculpture cascading down the centre of a stairway, creating the illusion of falling droplets.  The challenge was to bring the movement, beauty and shifting light of a waterfall inside a residential setting.  Each glass droplet is unique, handcrafted in different sizes and shapes to reflect the spontaneity of falling water.  Yet, the true magic of the piece comes to life as the onlooker views the sculpture from a variety angles, seeing something new with every step along the stairway.

 

Every single product we make is hand made in a glass factory and metal workshops located in the Czech Republic. This factory specializes in luxury glass manufacturing and processing was created in the early 1900's by Antonin Jilek and Frantisek Wetter, well known artisans in Europe for their know-how.

Generations of glassblowers have been working in the factory and together we discuss the production and talk about the development of new products.

More than a manufacturing workshop, we are all one big family who believe in our projects, our products and our vision of Clartés since the first days of the brand.
