For the past 40 years, LSA International has explored the limits of handmade glass, creating colorful contemporary barware, tableware, and interior goods that are a joy to use and a wonder to behold. Simple, elegant shapes in stunning hues are the British company’s strength, with most items designed by the prolific Monika Lubkowska-Jonas. LSA has recently added porcelain objects to its repertoire, and several of its pieces are displayed in the permanent collection of London’s Geffrye Museum and featured in New York’s MoMA design shop.
Add a kick to cocktail hour with these contemporary tumblers, champagne flutes, and carafes designed by British artist Monika Lubkowska-Jonas. Each is handmade, with the hues painted on the glasses’ surface and then oven-fired to seal them in. Note to the coffee and tea buffs: You’ll love the cups and saucers.
