Part of the latest collection by Resident, the Torchon Pendant by Cheshire Architects exploits the viscous potential of molten glass. A soft spherical vessel of handblown glass, still warm and malleable, is topped with a ball of molten glass. A bespoke tool is pushed through into the core, creating the appearance of a fissure within the transparent bubble. Priced from $930.
