The functional and the fantastical

Utopia & Utility was founded in 2012 by siblings Pia and Moritz Wustenberg. The pair creates handmade collections of gorgeous vessels that mix glass with wood, metals, and pottery. The components stack together to form tabletop sculptures that are simply breathtaking. Three separate crafts are used during the process to complete each piece. Stacking Vessels Small are made up of two separate containers that combine blown glass and turned, natural edge wood.Handmade Vessels by Utopia & Utility in home furnishings art  Category
