Charlotte Hargreave has created a glass carafe with a lid. The carafe is mouth-blown; the lid has a transparent underlay that creates a delicate interplay of colours. In this carafe, Hargreave seeks to combine and balance aesthetics and function to make a beautiful object for everyday use. It holds half a litre, a perfect amount for carrying a drink of water around the house or into the garden. The lid keeps out insects and doubles as a drinking glass. The carafe is equally useful on the nightstand, the podium or the café table. It is 22 cm tall, holds 0.5 l and comes with a lime-green or blue lid.
b. 1977, Danish Glass Designer
Hargreave graduated from the Glass and Ceramic School on Bornholm in 2002. Since 2004, she has had the glass studio Celsiusglas in collaboration with other designers. She was included in CC11, CC12 and CC+ for EXPO with “Carafe”. Charlotte Hargreave typically takes an explorative approach based on a given technique. Her works are created on the basis of numerous trials that she blows, cuts up and combines in ways that often produce a result that deviates from the original intention. Hargreave finds inspiration in the design of the 1950’s and 60’s; her expression is simple and rooted in Scandinavian design traditions. She has received a number of grants in recognition of her work, including grants from Danmarks Nationalbank’s Anniversary Foundation and the Toyota Foundation. In 2007, Hargreave took part in the Biennale for Craft and Design and exhibited in the Denmark House in Paris.
