Szkło /shkwo/ means glass in Polish. Szkło are functional glass sculptures, hand-blown in Amsterdam by Aleksandra Zawistowska with a team of craftsmen. Szkło is a celebration of materials and the glassblowing process, with no two pieces alike. Szkło is a combination of an imaginary approach, years of craftsmanship experience and an admiration for the raw material. Szkło stems from challenging the conventional glassblowing process, turning it into a playful experiment instead. As no traditional moulds are used in the process, the sculptures assume coincidental, spontaneous forms, often challenging the notion of beauty. The glassblowing process becomes as important as the final form itself. The mission of Szkło is to push the boundaries of functionality and material characteristics, turning the simple act of eating and drinking into an experience.
