We can access a wide spectrum of perceptions through our senses: every day,
every hour, constantly evolving. Our senses help us to interpret the world and
make us aware of those subtle nuances that add character and colour. We make
use of things in our surroundings to help us express ourselves, to demonstrate
our taste and how we enjoy life.
Glass is a central component in our lives and
culture, because it assists our senses. A simple glass of wine can reveal a
wealth of sensory impressions. As we raise a clear glass to the light, we can
admire a wine’s colour. As we hold the glass to our nose, we can inhale a
wine’s full bouquet and enjoy all of its aromas. Finally we raise the glass to
our lips to relish a wine’s complex flavors and finish. A glass vase filled
with delicate flowers can be used to provide a delightful array of sensory
impressions. We can admire the shapes of the flowers, their array and how they
interact with their container.
Glass teapots enable us to view the infusion,
colour and structure of a tea, whetting the appetite for that first taste. A
cup of Earl Grey invites us to enjoy the aroma of tea leaves and bergamot oil,
as their fragrances float through the air. Glass objects help to provide space
and light. We use them to create individual living concepts and to personalize
our lives. Glass is a material that can be translucent or opaque; soft or
angular; fragile or robust. As it moves between these and many other
polarities, it can be used to produce different effects. This provides glass
with an extraordinary freedom, to help us to open up and enhance our lives.
