Description

The thought of winter, the sun’s rays on a snowy landscape, the glints of northern light. On Pasternak’s novel. Cuts, made in the old way on grinding stone wheels, play softly with the transmitted rays of light. That rays of light, always caught, warms the palms.

The glass is an interpretation of my reading of the popular novel Dr. Živago and empathizing with the icy landscape, into which the sun’s rays penetrate like slices of sharp light that warms the mind and body.
I transferred it to experiencing the cold winters in the area of the Triglav National Park, and to the importance of the sun in those places where we wait for a month for it to peek over the mountain for the first time in mid-January. The glass uses the techniques of blowing glass and cutting it on the stone, which nowadays are almost no longer used due to the long process, but are part of the rich tradition of Slovenian glassmaking.

The product received Red Dot HM Award.

In the production, I drew on the rich treasure of the tradition of hand-blown and cut glass, which I upgraded with modern design approaches and introduced technological innovations.
The design plays with interspaces and layers. The result is a product that, with its lightness and shape, brings freshness to everyday life.

Handblown, hand-cut, limited edition.
