Laurence Brabant Editions
Laurence Brabant Editions is a French glass studio helmed by husband and wife team Laurence Brabant (the designer) and Alain Villechange (the flameworker). Their intention is to produce unpretentious discreet designs through sophisticated, functional, simple objects. All of Laurence Brabant Editions are handmade, mouth-blown in their studio. No molds or modifications are used, and each unique piece is made in one go which requires seasoned skill and concentration. Borosilicate glass was chosen as a material, for it enabled Laurence to produce designs that were otherwise limited by pipe blowing. It also produced thin, light glass pieces that were heat-resistant and deceivingly durable. Laurence liked the contrast between the visible fragility and durability.
