3D printed with glass-based material
Recreating the shapes of nature with highest precision
by Ivan Zhurba
These two beautiful design pieces were inspired by palm leaves and their vast usages. Did you know that the Bribri people of Costa Rica use palm leaves for drinking cups? When leaves are heated over an open flame, they become strong and flexible like plastic. They then can be folded and formed into a cup.

Ivan Zhurba's palm leaf bowl and vase have a unique sandy texture, which can only be achieved by using our glass based printing material, that we have developed in-house.
