EDiTor's Piece of the Day 05.01.2012 - Pakoh Robot Slide
Boy am I excited to announce this Pakoh Robot Slide as our EDiTor’s Piece of the Day!!!
The famous Pakoh Robot Slide, is one of Pakoh’s flagship glass bowls. Pakoh is a visionary who makes functional, contemporary pieces of art glass which usually reflect modern society or mainstream pop culture. This glass bowl is actually a bowl stand and bowl formulated in one substantial piece of premium glass.
Made in the traditional Pakoh style, this is one of his iconic pieces. The robot slide stands 180mm tall with a removable hat (cover) at the top of the bowl. The hat is characterised by a tall faded green antennae with a red glass dot at the top resembling a light. The bottom of this robot acts as a stand and the bottom half for this robot design.
The slide is 18.8mm and is connected through a ground joint in the middle to complete the robot. This is a truly astonishing piece of eye candy for glass aficionados around the world.
