Concept

The mouthblown, handcut and polished glass objects look like shaped in a lathe. The roots of this series are found in both cultural spheres – Europe and Asia. The 1000 year old temples at Angkor have similar turned pillars from stone. In the architecture of Josef Hoffmann you will find horizontaly grooved structures with nearly the same section. In spite of their tranparence the objects maintained their archaic strenght.
