Explosion spheres

Onderstaande prachtige glasobjecten zijn in de galerie aanwezig!

I have been experimenting with the combination of liquid glass and metal for years. This is a challenge because metal has a much greater expansion than glass. In other words: a combination of metal and liquid glass will break when cooling down. Lots of experiments together with the glass masters resulted in knowledge, insight and solutions.

Blowing liquid glass through a thin metal net results in a spectacular effect: a ‘frozen explosion’. This is the process used for the creation of the Explosionspheres. The result is a combination of old craftmanship techniques and high-tech materials. The object needs to cool down for a long time, to reduce the tension in the glass. After this the object can be cut and polished. The process is only half controlled, which results in unique pieces every time. 

The Explosionsphere mirrors its environment. Therefor it fits in every interior design as a chameleon on the wall or on a table.
