HIGH CONTAINER, decorative silvery jars. Sebastian Herkner’s vases may seem unassuming at first glance.
But a closer look reveals a special aspect of the hand-blown pieces. Created in the manner of Bohemian craftsmanship, a dash of liquid silver is injected into the glass under pressure.
The illustrious double-walled result lends a touch of glamour to the jars, available in orange, dusty rose, silver or blue. All that’s missing is the flowers.
Glass - hand blown, double walled, tinted + silvered

Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim. He studied product design at the HfG Offenbach am Main (Offenbach University of Art and Design), already focusing during his studies on designing objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details. Whilst still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped to hone his feeling for materials, colours, structures and textures. Since founding his own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as De Vorm, Moroso and nanoo, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums. Since 2007 he has taught several courses at HfG Offenbach am Main as visiting lecturer.
