FADO

– A series by Göran Wärff
“My Fado series is inspired by Portuguese music, often with themes of longing and the ocean. Fado, a blue ball in glass with gray glass cut on the glassblowing pipe is the very seed of the series I call Fado. The idea is to use several gathers of glass to emphasize the shape and let it grow into a vase, a vessel for a flower or a glass object in its own right.” – Göran Wärff

“The glowing glass in the oven entices me to explore. Each gather renews my desire to convey the experience of the magic of glass. To make a piece of glass as a carrier of light, sea and air. I want to create a home for light, for warmth and for sensuality.” 

Few artists have the intuition for glass possessed by Göran Wärff, who has always treasured classical, masterful expertise in glassblowing and grinding. The play of light within the depths of clear glass and the endless optical illusions produced as the glass breaks light are frequent themes of his productions. Beyond glass itself, his primary sources of inspiration are nature and the play of light within it.
