Casarialto and Summerill & Bishop: Iris and Lotus

Casarialto and Summerill & Bishop have joined forces to create a fascinating collection of handmade borosilicate glass candleholders, Iris and Lotus

The meeting between the two brands dates back to 2021, when they began taking their first steps together to collaborate on a commercial level. The naturalness with which the relationship has continued over the years, combined with the values of excellence and authenticity of the two brands, now leads to the launch of this limited edition collection designed by Summerill & Bishop and produced by Casarialto.


A combination that respects brands not only for the suggestions behind the design of the two elements but also for the excellence and savoir-faire behind their creation. Created ad hoc to a design by the British brand, the collection consists of two candleholders inspired by the ethereal beauty of nature, depicted in the forms of iris and lotus flowers. Combining expertise and a refined aesthetic, this collection celebrates the timeless charm of nature, evoking a sense of enchantment through the delicate petals of the iris and serenity through the design of the lotus flower.

The pieces, meticulously handmade using lampworking and glassblowing, are an expression of the mastery and refinement of Italian craftsmanship, of which Casarialto is a spokesman. The master craftsmen have worked borosilicate glass, a transparent and brilliant material, very light but incredibly resistant, to give life to these unique creations, the result of the countless trials necessary to obtain the desired result. A fascinating and delicate phase in which the material is moulded by human skill and the creations only idealised on sketches finally take shape. A journey in which Casarialto is always at the craftsman’s side.

Casarialto was born in 2008 from the fusion of international design knowledge and a skilful use of craftsmanship: a journey through tableware and furnishing accessories that gradually define and deepen the Venetian passion for glassmaking. Since 2020, with the Casarialto Atelier project, he has been co-creating unique pieces in collaboration with Italian craftsmen, thus redefining the marriage of innovation and tradition. casarialto.it
