Glass for Bert Haanstra

For the Leerdam Glass Museum the task was to think of a gadget like humoristic souvenir. Inspiration came from seeing the Oscar winning film Glas by Bert Haanstra (1958) about glass blowers at work. I wanted to reproduce the cheeks of glass blowers’ as they were so intriguing to look at. I was invited to participate the opening exhibition of the National Glass Museum that was opened by Queen of the Netherlands.

Material and method: Glass, plaster moulds
Exhibition: National Glass Museum Leerdam, I’ll be blown exhibition as young talent, June 2010 - March 2011
