THE ART OF CONTEMPORARY GLASS
THE FOUR ELEMENTS
These four elements are considered as basic principle to all creature bodies.
It is therefore natural to illustrate through purposes, the philosophy of these four element in their relation with glass. It seems that we can by getting from positive experiences to aesthetique ones, demonstrate in thousands of examples the passion- based interest of day dreaming of beautiful solids.
That pose end lessly all the time under our eyes, for good materials that faithfully obey to the creative effort…
Through the four elements, the origins of glass-the magic of his sculptures or crystal objects captivate light which contains these 4 elements.
The origin of glass goes back to the dawn of times , in that blessed land of the middle east where man used to live as a nomad first then he gradually become a sedentary agent. He was in need of secure life, he wanted to survive, to get organised discover the principles of baked clay for the first kitchen earthenware, those made of metal come later and finally glassware .
The artist designs and masters the work for a life style and materiality he expresses the original true artistic creations and gets closer to living creatures through their forms and visual identity.
He finally manages to merge into a whole unique real divinity like object : earth.
In physics , glass is considered as solidified water.
Thanks to that the creator statrts to understand the unique and conceptual reality , first by studying the fluidity of alchemic product from its imprecise contents :
Tyranslucid liquid or honey like tinted , of fountain of changes and purity.
That is a show that our eyes enjoy we can see the glass being transformed into a master piece
Colourless, limpid source or enamel –shaded.
It produces vibrating emotions as we contemplate the work to be.
Being completely illusive the appearing reality has no material existence at all ; AIR .
Necessary for the stream of emotion and the artist ‘s philosophy, It states a perception of strength, Light , Intensity ,exaltation, transparency to the light in all directions in space.
Air becomes the finishing touch to the perception of shappes of movements and vibrations of the work.
Historically speaking, those days, glass was melted into blast furnaces set in open air then the technique got gradually improved, and since the Roman rule, glassprocessing was achieved in sophisticated ovens .
After an experimental use of materials, the artist can change a stone into a transparent clear and luminous crystal caping transfiguration, in the heat of its philosophical reflexions .
The heat of the creator glassblower who gets involved in the path of perfection, this heat starts by burning illusive pictures in him so as to lead to a transformation through a catalysis like process.
