ABOUT

 

CURIO glassware is a celebration of the true artform of free-blown glass and its relationship with nature. Each piece is designed by Olivia Thorpe and singularly handblown in UK, allowing the glass to move freely and organically, all the better to mirror the natural elements that inspire each design. Each piece is totally unique and should be admired as much for its sculptural form as for its function.

CURIO is built upon the solid foundations of conscious beauty that Olivia established with her skincare brand Vanderohe and adopts the same, luxury, sustainable approach of the mother brand, extended into the Lifestyle space. CURIO uniquely celebrates local artisans and developing talent, working exclusively with independent British glassblowing artists, who free blow each and every piece by hand without the use of moulds.

CURIO’s distinctly modern feel emanates from the way that each design takes on a different form, depending on light and position. Layered speckles, translucency and bold colour gradations play with light and form in the same fascinating and joyful way that nature does.
