J. HILL’s Standard ‘CUTTINGS’ collection has been designed by Italian-born, London-based designer Martino Gamper. As the ultimate contemporary craftsman, Gamper has brought his creativity and expertise to J. HILL’s Standard throughout their ongoing collaboration. Martino Gamper creates as he cuts and sculpts the crystal, drawing instinctive silhouettes and sleek lines. The result is a series of three distinctive cuts that were translated into a family of functional tableware.
Like carved sculptures, the glasses and carafes of the ‘Cuttings’ series feature strong, intuitive marks confidently hewn out of the surface of the lead crystal. The fingers naturally seek out the smooth hollows and crisp ridges of the cuts of the crystal, enhancing the tactile experience when handling the glass. The Cuttings series includes a champagne, wine, and beer glass and a carafe that can also be used as a vase.
