Layered Glass Sculpture

Dimensions 1150 x 360 x 210 mm


Harenam is a fine work of art, technically complicated composition, where one defined form is molded into another. There are three forms merged in a way that the story changes depending on the viewpoint. One can either see it as one solid piece of decorative art, or an act of winding between the three elements.


You might see a play of sand, blown up in the air, by a swashing, cold breeze, reminding of how fragile we, humans, are, how easily our inner world can be stirred up with a little blow from the outside. See the interlacing of the forms, think of a thread that one's life hangs on, of how thin it is, how perishable…


Finally, look at the details… see the delicate, soft lines created out of this hard material… Despite Harenam's deceptive small size, this sculpture is made of 298 pieces of glass, which is merely 1/3 less than monumental  Halitus  twice it's size and six times it's weight.
