This sculptural glass piece combines two different techniques, on-mandrel lampwork winding and separately blown bubbles. This series was originally created for an exhibition of contemporary glass beads entitled "Air and water". I chose to depict the interface between the two, the bubble, in the process of bursting. Glass is the ideal material to freeze an instant of time !
These beads can be used in jewelry or as tabletop ornaments.
I work exclusively with soda-lime type glass, mostly from the venetian brand Effetre. Some of the surface effects on this bead were made using cubic zirconium inclusions.
Please note that this is a sizable piece (for a bead), which explains the high shipping costs as it needs a well padded box.
MEASUREMENTS : 40 x 40 x 32 mm. Hole size: 3 mm.
