Relativity of Color
Hand-blown Glass, Acrylic
A series of hand-blown glass and cast acrylic objects around abstract notions of color, light materiality and attachment. Two intersecting elements coexist without each being able to exist independently blending in each other, gently touching, balancing. The multicolor combination of varying translucent and transparent elements create a palette of five distinct objects whose use suggest a ceremonial process by handling the delicate forms: a bowl, a plate, a vase, a low glass and a taller wide glass. The balancing of the volumes creates illuminating visual exercises and mind-bending optical illusions of filtered colors. Depending on the viewing point one can discover the relation of the colors when looking through the overlapping layers. Not two elements are the same throughout the handmade process, and a game of infinite possible combinations of volume and color leaves room for personal interpretations when experiencing the object.
