Elisabeth Henriksson

Elisabeth : In 2004, I finished my masters degree project from Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, in collaboration with Kosta Boda. My theme was “variation” and to make the products coming alive by using simple methods condusive to industrial production. The thoughts I brought with me into the project centred around chance (that which cannot be directed and predicted) vs control. I thought about the value of that which is unique and about the possibilities of working with unique pieces and individuality in an industrial production.

Ceramic for mix

The project aims at introducing a new way of drinking tea or another warm drink (with sugars), replacing the spoon. Ceramic ball is the simplest shape, where this hygienical and qualitative material finds its place.

The ball is put into a glass built with special shapes. Then we have to pour some infused tea into it for exemple: the liquid pushes the ball, and invites users to move it by moving the glass. The ceramic ball comes to mix all various sugars, ringing the glass at the same time. When we drink, this ball is blocked by the gravity in the recess of the glass, moreover than its shape is too big to be ingested.

This is a different and amusing way to use ceramic.

Function creates an new gestural and aesthetic appeal.

Valencia, the next conference in Glass Science in Art and Conservation, GLASSAC-08 on March 5-7, 2008 ref : 1298
The next conference in Glass Science in Art and Conservation, GLASSAC-08 on March 5-7, 2008 will take place at the Valencia University Historic Building on the Valencia city center.

Following the successful conferences organised in Portugal in 1999, "Glass, Art and Science" and 2005, 'Glass Science in Art and Conservation' by the Portuguese Glass Association, the participants agreed that there was a need for the international glass community to share knowledge and insight across the barriers which all too easily separate glass science and technology from art, conservation and design.

Coinciding with GLASSAC congress, a glass exhibition will be a feature of the 2008 Valencia conference: THE LANGUAGE OF THE MATTER. Carlos Muñoz de Pablos: glassworking painter, by one of the best contemporary Spanish glass working master.

Marina y Susanna Sent

Each piece of Sent glass jewelry is handcrafted in Murano, Italy, at the studio of sisters Susanna and Marina Sent.
Susanna and Marina are descended from generations of Venetian glassmakers. While Susanna studied architecture
and Marina studied chemistry, they now follow in the family tradition, creating modern pieces of jewelry quite different
from all the other glass jewelry one finds in Venice.

Bob and Laurie Kliss

Bob and Laurie Kliss :"Glass has always intrigued us, especially the material's ability to convey pure color. From our beginnings, working with stained glass, to the present, working with hot glass, we have considered ourselves colorists. Some of our current series take advantage of the pure color of glass in the form of shard drawings. Shard drawings are basically abstract assemblages of colored glass shards, cane, stringer, and murrini. The vessel's form becomes the canvas upon which the shard drawing is displayed."

Martin Cheek






Martin Cheek: "El mosaico se hace cada vez más popular tanto como una forma de arte como como un medio decorativo. Considero mi trabajo de mosaico como una progresión lógica de la animación, la demostración del carácter y el movimiento de miles de elementos diminutos. En particular me inspira el mundo natural y me gusta desafío de capturar su gracia orgánica en un medio tan aparentemente inflexible. "

Martin Cheek: “Mosaic is becoming more and more popular both as an art form and as a decorative medium. I regard my mosaic work as a logical progression from animation, both of which involve building a coherent whole, displaying character and movement, from thousands of tiny elements. I am particularly inspired by the natural world and relish the challenge of capturing its organic grace in such a seemingly uncompromising medium.”
