sculptural glass vase no.3 (horizontal) of 4 unique pieces of volume III

This collection of glass vessels represents movement in time, the simultaneity of the past and the future.
The making process is a captivating synergy of elements — the tiniest details of a momentary structure of burning wood are captured with molten hot glass, continuously changing shape.

The wooden mould changes continuously during the glass blowing process and eventually burns down. A sequence number is assigned to each piece, and due to the design and the technique, each object is one of a kind, and its shape, texture, dimensions, and weight differ, as if it would be grown from the earth. Moulds for glassblowing are made out of local timber consciously selected by the designer to achieve a variety of structures.

Charred wooden mould is not included, it is for illustration purposes only.
