Passionate about glass, a true lover of flowers, born in the heart of the wine region, Burgundy, Marianne Guedin loves life, nature, partying and the magic of shapes. An enchanted universe that she wishes to pass over into Tree for 2, she signs the designerbox#6. Highly inspired by nature, she got her idea from the orchards she visited during her childhood where bottles attached to the branches of pear-trees imprisoned the fruit-buds that would eventually mature in these glass cages. For Marianne, the pear morphs into an enchanted tree. With a volume of 37.5 cl, the “fillette” (girly) French standard decanter is a perfect match for celebrations and can become the ideal holder for sparkling water or champagne, since it reveals the bubbles 'dynamics' when they stick to the branches of this miniature tree.
Tree for 2 is both a carafe and a beautiful decorative piece to contemplate.
Tree for 2 needed a keen and delicate glass-blower's know-how.
Several steps were required to produce this piece. A borosilicate glass tube (extremely resistant to thermal shocks) is heated, blown and strained. Meanwhile, the tree is sculpted out of glass rods minutely soldered to a small glass dome. This assembling is then slipped into the tube that is re-heated and molded, thereby obtaining its final and regular shape.
Marianne Guedin created Tree for 2, a 37.5cl "fillette" (girly) french standard decanter, based on a childhood memory: one of orchards cluttered with bottles attached to the branches of pear trees. This decanter is a precious and decorative object.
