Mouth blown glass, clear, satin matt finish, and filigrane.

In these objects, the artist was focused on a dialogue between functional and sculptural elements, and the combination of shapes and colours. All parts and colours can be freely combined with each other, creating new shapes, yet retaining function.

This combination is the most dramatic of this series, the “Carmen” of the group, with passion and bursting but refined expression. With the brilliant red of the vase, This Way, and with the black and red layered and vertically cut vase or bowl That Way, the combination is an elegant show-stopper. The combination is sculptural, yet each part can be used separately and retain the function of a vase and a bowl.
