The form of this container for water or wine inverts the geometry of the goblet, setting a cylinder on a hemispherical foot. In use the carafe carries a dramatic column of coloured or clear liquid; empty it becomes a vehicle for the play of light and reflections.
The glassware is a part of John Pawson's tableware collection for the Abbey of Nový Dvůr in Bohemia. It began with the idea of equipping the refectory of the Abbey with a set of implements and vessels appropriate to the functional and aesthetic needs of the monastic community.
