The natural and dynamic shape of the jellyfish, called “medusa” in Italian, is the reference for this hand made glass bowl by designer Giorgio Bonaguro.

Says Bonaguro, “Starting from a cylinder of glass, through a long process of heating and forming of the material, the walls fold on themselves.”

“In a not entirely controllable way, because of the different fluidity of the material according to the temperature, some ruffles are naturally created, different for each piece, thus remembering even more the movement of jellyfish, and practically making each fruitbowl a unique piece.”
