Celebrating Design: Monmouth glass studio

Monmouth glass studio is based in New Zealand, where they hand-make a range of bespoke blown glass lighting and home-wares, as well as custom made glass objects.

“The lighting is free-blown, without moulds, which allows for individuality and a genuine hand-made aesthetic.”

Their aim is to make things that have value in their aesthetic beauty, necessity and function. That’s why every piece is hand shaped and finished using traditional glassblowing techniques that date back hundreds of years.

“Here at Monmouth Glass we handcraft exquisite glass objects that people need and use every day. ”

 Glassblowing is a limitless and versatile medium. The intrinsically fluid properties of glass make it unlike any other material.

“Each piece is hand-blown by us in the traditional method at our studio in Grey Lynn, Auckland”

Their philosophy is based in the handmade for everyday use: “There is something invaluable about using handmade objects in daily life: to drink from, to eat out of, or to light the space we live in. We believe in quality items that are well-designed, well-made, and will stand the test of time.”
