Using a process akin to sewing together animal hides, or piecing together small fragments of cloth to create a patchwork quilt, Patchwork-glass is a series of glass vessels designed by Nendo studio and made by Czech glassmakers Lasvit.

"We reheated a variety of objects already decorated with traditional cut glass patterns, then sliced them open and reattached them to each other to create one large object." says Nendo.
