Glass works.

At the beginning of my art studies, in south of France, I used to dye textiles with plants. Natural dyes were teaching me how to observe and understand, how to affix or stabilize a pigment in the matter but also how to cook and experiment.

Today, in the two glass workshops from Munich art academy, I am enjoying the glass-alchemy.  In the last 5 years I have been working mainly in those, blowing hot glass with lamps, drawing volumes with glass sticks and melting flat glass (fusing).

Vanitas Glass – bones & bones ash, glass, metallic support

Glass is a fascinating but temperamental material. As soon as one tries to melt glass, it is nearly impossible to mix it with other materials.

I did try to find out what kind of material could be able to work together with glass in terms of material´s resistance but also as a concept. Ash is already a component of glass and after several attempts, glass and bones’ash appeared to match together.

I made a kind of funerary urn, which has in point formally nothing to do with it, melting glass, bones and bones´ash together.

In that sculpture the glass is partially opacified by the white powder but the sculpture (2m/2m) remains transparent. Some bones pieces are giving a great relief to the sculpture. The shape is looking like a paravent in order to show what we usually hide: death and bereavement.

Broken windows from galeries

I am working with recycled glass from windows. In some of my exhibition spaces I distroyed the window and melted the broken pieces together leting the room open. I gave to some of the sculptures a ‘paravent’ shape in order to stand in the space like a new open window replacing the missing one. Others are re-playing the shape and proportions from the original/missing windows.
