Inspired by the icons of great mid-century modern design, these dramatic decanters are a study in color, form and function. The Joe Cariati studio in Los Angeles produces thousands of elegantly minimalist, functional pieces per year. Each deceptively complex, one-of-a-kind object is crafted by hand utilizing a unique process of rapid succession using no blow molds.
Award winning artist, craftsman and educator, Joe Cariati has dedicated over 25 years to the practice of glassblowing. He is a designer, maker and mentor. Joe’s work is an incomparable synthesis of calculated pragmatism and essential beauty. While Joe thrives off of repeatable process and predictable results, it is the fact that during any given piece, he can experience elation, frustration, defeat or discovery that drives his creative spirit. In 2003, Joe established his eponymous studio in Los Angeles, California where he continues to refine his craft and push his boundaries as a glassblower and a designer.
