Sophie Lou Jacobsen | Giardino Candleholders, Set of 3


Part of her Giardino Segreto series inspired by secret gardens captured in Renaissance painting and textiles, these limited edition objects explore the poetic tension of fragile yet enduring beauty. Hand sculpted in soda lime glass, the pieces are tulips and daffodils that vary in size. Together their sensuous stems and alabaster white petals stretch towards the sun. The material echoes the vulnerability and delicacy of that which they represent, highlighting the preciousness of nature even when frozen in time.

This set is available for pick up/ shipping week of June 10th.

About the Maker

Sophie Lou Jacobsen is a French-American designer currently based in New York City. She established her studio in 2019, with an initial focus on objects of everyday use, mostly using glass as a medium and exploring the interaction between object and user. Her work stems from the idea that objects have an innate power to enhance their user's mood through form and function. She focuses on simple objects and rituals, to see how she can alter these in ways that are surprising, delightful, and elevate the user experience. She believes that the objects which we surround ourselves with can and should be imbued with a certain poetry, creating a relationship between humans and objects built on mutual respect.
