POLAR– A series by Göran Wärff
Göran Wärff created the Polar series with inspiration from landscapes and ice.
“Glass is a liquid. It’s as alive as rippling water. In Polar, I have frozen that movement in time, capturing the convergence of ice and light in an optical phenomenon. Polar is uncompromising, filled with life and movement.” – Göran Wärff
Polar is a series of glass sculptures that also serve a function as candleholders. Combine the different sizes to create a playful grouping, or display the biggest one as a carefully selected design object in an art-loving home.
“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.
