Cup and Paste by Bas Van Beek
by Mike / November 16, 2010
Via, a pressed glass collection for the Museum Year Object by Bas van Beek. Holland stopped producing pressed glass 35 years ago so Van Beek turned to the Internet and discovered a factory in China that could make him his moulds... "It is amazing. I did the whole thing via email."

"Cup and Paste is based on some Berlage sketches of a cup and a series of bowls that Van Beek uncovered at the Netherlands Architecture Institute. The sketches were designs for pressed glass objects for the Leerdam Glass Factory, but were never produced."
