I love vines, so these Vine Glasses by Johanna Jansson immediately popped out. They're champagne flutes and wine glasses cradled delicately in the tender embrace of a curved vine.

Jansson is a Swedish glass artist who, according to Vessel Gallery, frequently draws upon the Swedish countryside to inform her stunning creations. Each piece of Vine Glass stemwear is made by hand, so no two are exactly alike.

Implications - North American society is saturated with mass-produced goods. As such, consumers are looking for unique and exclusive products to feel a sense of individuality and to differentiate themselves from their peers. Companies that can offer product designs which are vastly distinct from their competitors are more likely to garner success than companies who create easily accessible wares.
