The Karmen Saat 'Frame Glass' Appears to be Floating

The transparency of Karmen Saat 'Frame Glass' makes the collection a clear choice. The pieces were created by Estonian artist Karmen Saat, who works in mediums such as ceramics and glass. She was inspired to create the glassware after making very quick sketches, and as the drawings came into fruition they appear to be floating.

As Saat states on her website, "Finding beauty in the ugly and unwanted takes her craft to a totally different direction. She treats her work as a piece of art, allowing the work to be brave and expressive." This is why each piece in this collection provides a new perception on an everyday object, as Saat holds true to the purity of her simple sketches.

The design is very contemporary in its simplicity, yet its two-dimensional drawing aesthetic provides an interesting structure to the glassware.
