HopStep for J. HILL's Standard
We're pleased to announce the launch of the first object for J.HILL’s Standard: HopStep.
This marks the start of a series called ‘Pot Variations’.
In designing glass pieces, we were searching for an inner and outer form to shape. In this search Anike Tyrell was a very generous sparring partner. HopStep is the next step after Oil Pipe (a design made for Georg Jensen in cast steel) and Pipe (cast porcelain), the kiln cast crystal version (the first one for J. HILL’s Standard) was a miracle, giving in to difficulties in seeing an inside and outside line when it concerns glass that had to be dealt with - read control - this 2nd inner line. It showed that Oil Pipe was in fact a precursor for HopStep.
HopStep – Pots for holding precious liquids be it wine, soy, sake or oil;
or to use as an infusion chamber for teas + flowers.
