With this large vase, glass artist Belinda Hornsey captures the organic forms of Scandinavian glass-making. The glass is a beguiling lavender

This is a high quality piece of glassmaking which reflects and adsorbs the light beautifully, great for late summer stemmed flowers too
The larger version is quiet rare and has a lovely presence - adorned, or without flowers
