Floating Lines

Floating Lines

In this work series I’ve expanded upon ancient techniques to create a new approach in which graphical patterns are made by hand folding glass in the multiple layers within its depths, while emulating the work of a 3D printer.

My work acts as a conversation between the tradition and future of glass craft and design. My passion and devotion pushes me to constantly seek new methods of creation while continuing to pay homage to the masters I learned from. “I draw the boundaries of my craft further with every experience.”

My work is rooted in high craftmanship and consists of countless days of preparation and work in the hot shop and cold shop to achieve a soft, satin finish.

The brass bases of the „Floating Lines“ are accurately coldworked in the glass, highlighting its shapes and adding a golden glow to the bottom of each piece.
