Vintage Inspiration: French Glass Sculpture

by Amy Azzarito

This French glass sculpture was one of the first things we bought for the office, which seemed strange at the time, considering we didn’t even have a desk. But when we saw it at John Derian, there was just something about the colors. I’m not usually one for so many colors in one place, but the clarity of the glass brings it all together. And now, in the middle of winter when everything seems gray, I could use some color. — Amy Azzarito
