This blue, sculptural glass vessel is part of the core collection of Hollow Forms titled “Alienation”, designed and produced in Palestine in collaboration with local expert craftsmen that have developed a family glassblowing business for generations.
The concept comes from the common blue glass found in Hebron, Palestine, one of the centers of glassblowing in the world. Blue glass is found in most Palestinian homes and this collection is reminiscent of that, with a contemporary twist.
The form is designed using 3D architecture software that was used to communicate the design with the glassblowers. The form itself is inspired by ancient glass vessels found in the Levant. The collection was the first thing produced upon my return to Palestine after fifteen years of alienation.
