After recently finishing their MA at the Royal College of Art, Cristina Vezzini and Sheng Tsang Chen set up Vezzini & Chen, a ceramic and glass company based in north London. One of their first creations, ‘Close Up’, is a series of pendant and table lights made of bone china and glass.

“On the glass, bubble-lens were created to distort and magnify the view of the Bone china inside.” says Vezzini & Chen. “The Bone China appears distorted and magnify as looking inside a microscope. The connection between the material Bone China and the ‘immaterial’, light allows me to create a connection between the visible and invisible natural world.”

The bone china pieces inside the glass form are slip casted and hand carved individually. The glass containers are free blown by Sheng Tsang Chen so that each one is unique and bespoke.
