Portland-based glass studio, Esque Studio, run by Justin Parker and Andi Kovel, creates “modern, functional, concept-based glassware aimed at the design industry and away from the pedestal.  These guys have become huge, leading the trend in designer glassware and even rising to one of Time Magazine’s most influential international design studios.

I just love the fact that they added anatomical glasswork design to their collection!  I don’t know much about glass blowing, but blowing glass into the shape of a skull seems incredibly difficult.

The pieces above were all exquisitely designed by Justin Parker.
