This set is single edition pieces which are pushing the process with new experiments. The processes include glass blowing into an optic mould, using colour combinations, two types of sand in one vessel and the designer making some of the pieces herself to develop the process further.
The sands originate from Iceland, Miami, Sahara Desert, Bulgaria, Southern and Aegean Coast of Turkey. These items are single edition and you can find them on our online store.
SAND TO GLASS SERIES
When heated to 1,575 °C, sand becomes liquid. It is the detritus of pebbles, and pebbles are rocks that have been broken by pressure, baking sun, coursing water and frost shatter. When exposed to temperature and pressure, sand becomes glass. No matter its final form, every glass object contains centuries of history and deep connection to a physical landscape. In the Sand to Glass Series, sand is the both the raw material, and the glass itself.
Sand to Glass series source sands from different geographies in the World. Vases, Glassware and DUO collections are made with different sand to glass infusion techniques referencing to the cycle in nature. Sand infused glass shows different patterns and textures and also create a haptic experience to reconnect users back to the nature.
Our Sand to Glass items are all available in bespoke sands. Please visit our online shop to browse all items. You can bring/send your own sand for a bespoke order or select the sands, which are available from the Arenophile page. Scientifically, no sand in the world is the same to another beach: Each sand is time - location specific since the nature changes all the time. Our sands are in limited quantity, therefore could be used up to a number of editions.
