Glass

Stand number:  A16

«Glass is so easy; it is why it is so difficult.
Apart from enchanting transparency, glass is above all a marvellous substance able to embed many various capacities of treatments and aspects, from deep state to surface.
In my work I wish to honour glass, which means not being unfaithful towards it. I try to play with but respect its properties such as optical conductions (transparencies, reflexions, transmissions…) and plastic behaviour (creep, colours, fragilities, surface and depth as one…) by approaching/expressing its limits in a poetic manner.
For GLOW BAL, glass reflector and decorative part become one bridging element.
Glass might be the ultimate medium for celebrating light…and corollary shadows!» – Françoise Bolli
