Description from Mjölk
The water bulb was designed as part of the Garden Works Collection by Anderssen & Voll for Mjolk.
The water saver has basically the same function as a PET-water bottle turned upside down. The water is filtered through the soil and seeps slowly into the pot. We adapted this function to a sculptural glass object that mimics the plant and that would be nice enough to park in your flower pots even when its not in use.
The glass water saver bulb which is a simple design with a remarkably difficult production. These pieces are made by glass artist Gregor Herman, one of the best glass artists in Canada. The glass is mouth-blown and hand shaped, harkening back to the brilliant experimental art glass of Sarpaneva or Wirkkala.
Made in Toronto, Canada
Please note this is a mouth-blown and hand-shaped glass work, and there are differences in shape and colour from bulb to bulb.
