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 piece of Clartés glassware is handmade in our Bohemian glass factory and metal workshop located in the Czech Republic. Our methods of luxury glass manufacturing were first created in the early 1900’s by the highly sought-after artisans Antonin Jilek and Frantisek Wetter. Their legacy is a workshop that specialises in Bohemian glass and crystal, internationally recognised for its beauty, high quality craftsmanship and innovative flare.

Generations of glassblowers have made the factory their home and together we are passionate in planning the future and development of new products and cutting-edge design.

More than a manufacturing workshop, we are all one big family who will continue to believe in our products and our vision of Clartés as the forefront of contemporary glass design.
