Nature In Glass
Gingerina
12 feb 2015 12:51

Simone Crestani is a glass maker! He started blowing glass when he was 15 years old and immediately became very fond of it. He can say that he has two big passions so far in his life – glass and nature. Therefore, in his works he tries to combine both of them – he gives his sculptures natural shapes.

Meet Shayna Leib, an American glassblowing artist, whose magical art can make your heart stop in amazement. She works with different materials but prefers glass “not for its mimetic qualities to capture the look of other materials, but for it’s ability to express flow, freeze a moment in time, and manipulate optics.”

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson may be best known for his expansive installations that encompass entire rooms, but his smaller-scale works are just as compelling. The artist, who is based in Copenhagen and Berlin, often uses mirrors, tinted glass, stainless steel frames, and lightbulbs to create spectacular kaleidoscopic works that transform spaces into illuminated, multicolored realms of beauty. Lit from within, Eliasson's geometric lamps project dazzling hues and patterns on...

Murrine are designed by layering different colors of molten glass around a core, then heating and stretching it into a rod. When cool, the rod is sliced like a loaf of bread,...
