editor's obsession: sea bright.
July 05, 2011
There’s a part of us all that craves being included in something special and unique. Maybe it’s the allure of having a piece of something that few others are privy to, or perhaps we like the bragging rights that come along with exclusivity (no shame there). Either way, having something that is uncommon and one-of-a-kind speaks to everyone—or at least it speaks to me. And, as it turns out, Caleb Siemon’s Mokume Inciso Ocean Droplet vessel sings my very own siren song. The rare, hand-blown piece is made of hundreds of layers of serenely colored glass as thin as a sheet of paper and takes days to intricately carve. The blue and green hues transport me straight to the gorgeous, turquoise-tinted waters of the Mediterranean. It’s the closest to Santorini I can get without a passport!
