One of the Glass House’s first commissioned artists, Weston, CT-based Frances Palmer, designed her unique, irreverently shaped bowls and vases based on inspiration from Philip Johnson and David Whitney’s succulent garden located on the Glass House property.
“In my new collection for the Glass House, I have made shapes both organic and modern. The vases echo the forms and geometry of the buildings and sculptures on the property. The white and pewter glazes are inspired by the colors of nature through the Glass House windows.”
