Sources is a set made from recycled glass consisting of a water water glass and a wine glass, whose aesthetics reflect the source of their respective drink. Although both glasses share a silhouette, the clear and reduced form of the wine glass is reminiscent of the highly technical wine production process, while the water glass reflects the various layers of minerals and sediments that water passes through in the natural filtering process. The equalization of the shapes of the two drinking glasses also equalizes the two drinks, in that the wine glass does not tower over the water as usual but is pleasantly restrained, comparable to the unpretentious bistro glasses for house wines in France or Italy.
Glasses were produced via mouthblowing into plastermoulds.
