VASES MADE OF GLASS

Glass has been made in Venice since the 10th century. The recipes are secret and are passed on to the next generation only within families. This is how Laguna di Venezia became the world capital of glass design. The quality, purity, stability, brilliance, luminosity as well as the transparency of the colors of the glass produced on the island of Murano are incomparable.

THE POETRY OF THE USEFUL

The idea of making a vase out of glass was the logical development of my creative work with a new material. To give this material - which in ceramics has a mainly protective function, the glaze - the main role.

Like glass, glazes consist of mineral flours - quartz sand, soda, feldspar, lime, potash - and protect vessels like a skin against water and mechanical influences.

I set about developing prototypes and looking for a place to implement my project.  

In 2018 the time had come, the first unique pieces were produced on the island of Murano in collaboration with a local glassblower.
