Project Description

Abyss is another Object where I worked with the close combination of hot and coldworking techniques. In the beginning there was a little sketch that followed just a short idea.
The body is blown, hollow with black inside and it was given the rough shape while hot. With coldworking i refined the shape. The title "Abyss" comes from the depth that the viewer sees when looking through the black polished concave surface. This type of work needs utmost perfection, no scratches must disturb the polished surface. This piece is part of the collection of the Industrial Museum Gernheim Glassworks.
