Cool Hunting Video Presents: Esque

Esque make all manner of unusual glass work in their industrial Portland studio

If you’ve happened upon an unusual work of glass in a design store, magazine or Donna Karan’s NY flagship over the last decade or so, it’s probably a piece by the Portland-based studio Esque. In this video we visit the workshop and meet the duo behind Esque, Andi Kovel and Justin Parker, who formed the creative partnership in 1996 and have been subtly reinventing the artform since. Here, Andi explains her choice of medium and the two walk us through the process of creating one of their renowned water drop jugs.
