Description

The "Bodega Collection" explores the practices and utensils found at the traditional "bodegas de vermut" (Spanish vermouth cellar and bar). The piece explore the natural states of blown glass and the relationship between solid and liquid forms.

The designs are shaped using an antique metal funnel and soda siphon cage form. Influenced by the shapes and texture of fine crystal, the carafe reveals its handcrafted process and the nature of the material through a playful approach that retains traces of the mold. The drinking glasses make reference to one of the distinctive additions to the severed vermouth, where a small slit in the edge of the glass hints at the positioning of an olive pick.

Sanna’s work can be described as a search for equilibrium between rawness and refinement, harmony and intrigue. Her designs often draw references to architecture and brutalism, manifested in furniture and objects of pure shapes. Working with natural materials, her pieces consist of clean geometries coupled with timeless expression.
