This sophisticated blown glass object can be used dually as a bowl or a tray when turned upside-down. The unique form of this glass piece is achieved via the use of a deeper relief imprint where the glass once touched metal. A delicate white line and a unique imprint resembles of ethereal sensations by Nature’s phenomenon – fog and dew. Each piece is handcrafted from crystal clear glass and differs slightly in size and thickness.
Inspired by two phenomena that happens in nature fog & dew, this signature collection offers a set of three uniquely formed vases and a sophisticated bowl & tray. Each object is made from free formed mouth–blown glass that reveals the plasticity and brilliant shine of the glass through special imprints, where the glass once touched metal. An Antique Latvian linen-craft tool was used to achieve this imprint and it has become a distinctive feature of Collection Calm. The employment of this archaic artefact signifies the timeless relationship between Nature’s phenomena and ancient Latvian craft tradition which is expressed in Contemporary Glass Art through symbolic ‘imprint of time’.
Collection Calm has been previously exhibited in France, Italy, United Kingdom, Japan, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Germany and the Baltic States.
