The work “MAGNETIC” is inspired by underwater life structures merged with the
fascination of magnetic collisions and fracturing. The inner shape attracts coloured glass particles that collide, shatter and fuse together on the outside leaving semi-melted floating glass on its surface. The sculptures interact with each other through its figuration and nuances. This process of glass magnetism creates infinite patterns and surfaces revitalizing the rigid nature of the material.

This series is based on a larger research over the years on underwater life and its colours.

“In the past two years I started focusing on new approaches of the outer surface life of glass. Challenging the material I’m assembling an object that redefines the conventional way of working with glass. The applied colours in multiple layers interfuse
with the core of the object. This unique “glass - magnetism” of colliding, shattering and fusing particles makes each object and sculpture of this series unique.”
