There is still time to see the AMAZING Jean Paul Gaultier
 Exhibition  at the Brooklyn Museum.  The attention to detail in his work is mind boggling.

I think it is time to start planning my next trip to Venice, for work, REALLY.  I need to dream my way out of this 2 Degree weather here in NYC.

These images are from an amazingly visual blog I recently discovered called Moniquetdany.  I have to brush up on my French to get the entire story but the images are enough to make my create mind wonder.

End Of Day Glasses

Over the Holiday walking around our home I marvel at Thomas' art on a daily useable basis. Washing the glasses, gifting the glasses , touching the glasses, catching a glimpse of the glasses on our set table while entertaining and the mere sight of them makes me dream. There are very few products in today's world that are hand blown and are available at an attainable price point that one can track back to an artist.

The End of The Day Glasses are exactly that, they are made at the end of the day. This is when Maestros, on the magical island of Murano, Italy, have finished making all the Chandeliers, Lamps and Accessories for Otium are able to use the excess glass and blow them into magical drinking glasses which Thomas has designed ensuring there is no glass left behind creating beautiful product that ensures sustainability.
