Excavated Vessels by Jeff Martin Joinery

A collection of one-of-a-kind vessels made through a process that involves blowing glass into used cork molds.

While we’ve previously featured the work of Jeff Martin Joinery, we’ve only seen his beautiful wooden furniture pieces. Now, the designer is exploring new mediums using scrap materials as inspiration in a series called Excavated Vessels. The blown glass vessels are made using remnants from their cork casting processes used in the production of their furniture and mirrors.

Glass is blown into the cork molds filling the negative space as it expands and as the molds are removed, oxygen seeps in between the materials causing the surface of the cork to catch fire, thereby destroying the mold in the process. The finished piece isn’t revealed until it’s excavated from the cork so they never know what they’re going to get. The one-of-a-kind results resemble the textures found on mountain, glaciers, rocks, and glacier pools as if they were “hurled into outer space.”
