Corning Museum, New York purchased Coffee Pot by Studio Job at Design Miami

Galerie VIVID, Saskia Copper & Aad Krol, sold the Coffee Pot by Studio Job to the Corning Museum at Design Miami last December 2011.

The Corning Museum of Glass is pleased with this amazing object by Studio Job. It makes rich references to glass history and to American popular culture in addition to the concerns of luxury, banality, hyper-craftsmanship, and anxiety that are characteristic of Studio Job’’
Tina Oldknow, Curator of Modern Glass

The Coffee Pot is a unique piece from the series Containers II, combining colored crystal from Val Saint Lambert (1826, Seraing) with bronze.

Containers II (2011)
Working with Val Saint Lambert, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel discovered a supply of antique, hand-blown crystal pieces that were never crafted into finished products. They selected five old vessels and designed a new series of unique pieces called ‘Containers II’. The series include a coffee pot, a poubelle (waste basket), a saucepan, a picklehaube and a stewpan, all on high gloss laquered pedestals.
