Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Splash is a Stacking Vessel inspired by the organic grace to be found in flower petals. The piece consists of a set of two individual containers, stacked together to create a sculptural vessel shape. Once disassembled each part becomes functional, serving as a wood bowl and a glass vase.

Handmade in Europe, by individual craftsmen: handblown glass (Czech Republic), hand-turned wood (Finland)
The materials then come to our warehouse in North Germany where they are fitted and assembled.

Craft challenge: creating a two-coloured glass bubble. The initial glass bubble of one colour has to be dipped in a second colour, resulting in an asymmetric glass bubble out of which the piece is blown.

Artist Profile

Born: 1986

Hometown: Kitee

Based in: Germany

Utopia & Utility is a journey filled with joy and beauty, from the process to the finished object.

The studio was founded in 2012 by Finnish-German designer Pia Wüstenberg.
Our story is all about crafts: we collaborate with specialised workshops all around Europe to make each one of the materials that compose the final piece.

For 8 years now, the Stacking Vessels and other collectibles from u&u have made their way all around the world to prestigious boutiques and design exhibitions.

Handmade in Europe, by people:
Everything we do is shaped by the hands of a maker. Glass blowers, carpenters, ceramicist, metal spinners, etc… we find the talent that is needed in small, specialised European workshops.
A u&u product travels through many hands before it reaches our warehouse in Germany. Things need to fit together precisely and each craftsman secures that they do just that.
Our materials & their origins:
Glass - England, Czech Republic
Ceramic - Germany, Austria, Scotland
Wood - Finland, Germany
Metal - England
