Paroles Paroles Paperweight Why Not
by Ayşe Birsel + Bibi Seck
Taken from the Paroles Paroles collection by Ayşe Birsel + Bibi Seck for NUDE, this paperweight possesses an enormity of character that belies its simplicity. Crafted from clear lead-free crystal and engraved with the playful “Why Not” slogan, it will stand proudly in any desk setting as both a cheeky and sculptural piece.
The mastery and craftsmanship of handmade glass is a signature of NUDE.
NUDE prides itself in its artisanal approach to glassware, specializing in handmade, pure crystalline glass, be the pieces blown or press-blown. With their Master blowers, NUDE continues to hand
make much of the world’s most acclaimed glassware.
We recommend washing this product by hand using a soft sponge, brush or by hand.
Please avoid using the scourer side of the sponge as it will create scratching on the surface of the glass.
After hand washing let the product dry. Finish cleaning by drying and polishing the product using a soft cloth, preferably micro fiber.
