Plum Vase I
Inspired by the Meiping and Maebyeong vases of ancient China and Korea, this piece presents the perfect vessel for displaying delicate buds and branches. With no surface texture or structural frame, its form is intended to be quietly visible. When placed on a window sill backed by natural surroundings, the plum vase adds a lightweight and fresh detail without being the dominant object.

Having discovered and fallen in love with glass during one chance encounter, Matthew Abadi quickly traded his life working a 9-5 for the life of a glassblower. Now known for his precise and delicate work, Abadi's glassware still maintains the unique and organic characteristics only obtained through a hand-blown glass process. Rarely making multiples of a piece unless commissioned by a shop or gallery, he employs various glass-making techniques to achieve pieces that are genuinely one-of-a-kind. Whether intended to perform a specific task or be appreciated from afar, each object is made with a meaningful purpose. The resulting glassware offers a beautiful simplicity within the space it occupies and the space it contains. Located in Portland, Oregon, Abadi can be found constantly pursuing new mediums to continue enriching his deep connection to craft.
