Glass Prototypes by Daniele Fratarcangeli
View Slideshow

Daniele Fratarcangeli is both a sculptor of glass and a teacher teaching his mad glass skills to others in San Diego, California. Each piece is hand-blown glass that is then mirrored on the interior to give it that reflective quality. Between the mirroring and the shape of the glass, the pieces create shiny optical illusions that are quite mesmerizing.

The pieces have an organic shape to them and some are made from clear glass while others have color. The mirroring is what ties them all together and when grouped, they really pop.
