For the past 40 years I’ve had this fascination with downtown Manhattan. Growing up watching my father commute to the financial district provided me my first glimpses of the city I would once live in. I’ve seen the neighborhood burgeon and fall and now that I’m fortunate enough to have my own family there, we’re witnessing it rise again with striking examples of modern architecture blending into the timeless grid that is Manhattan. Downtown is my way of commemorating this as we all slowly witness the metamorphosis of New York’s classic skyline.
Join us at UrbanGlass for their BourbonGlass fundraiser on October 7. We were kindliy asked to make all of the sampling glasses for the event and will be doing demos the night of.
UrbanGlass Gala & Auction, May 18, 2015
FurthurDesign is proud to have produced the centerpieces for this years gala. Designed especially for this evening's event, the 2015 Gala Centerpieces were each hand blown and sculpted in our studios, making them unique pieces of UrbanGlass and of Brooklyn.
