Milena Kling first launched her Raw Collection in 2018, driven by her passion for reinterpreting traditional methods for producing mouth-blown glass. Each glass vase in the collection is a one-of-a-kind created by free-blowing molten glass into fine copper mesh molds, which results in delicate surface patterns and a fluid seam where the glass has settled and cooled. The collection explores a wide palette of colors, from warm amber gold and ruby red to blue hues and natural smoke grey. Individual variations in color, shape, and thickness are intrinsic to the design. The Raw Vase Small Smoke Topaz measures 21 x 169 cm.
Glass artist Milena Kling founded her Berlin-based studio in 2012. Her handmade vessels, tableware, and objets d'art are produced in collaboration with expert European artisans and glassblowers. The studio's goal is to secure the future of craft production by developing a contemporary idiom defined by sensuous simplicity and unexpected details. Beyond the production of new collections and one-offs, the studio specializes in custom orders for high-end residential and commercial clients.
