Vision– A series by Göran Wärff
A friendly watching eye, brought to life by the unique movement of glass. Working with the crystal is a way to see and discover how this magical ”liquid” takes shape. Started freehand, a small bead of glass is cut on the glassblowing pipe, which will resonate in the edge of the final object. The color then meets another tone that is blown from the opposite direction. This is how a Vision is created to use.
“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.
