Glass, silicone.
58.5 x 50.5 x 49 cm
Selected Finalist at the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022.

Merging architectural structure with the form of a classical vase, Jarring has used a daring non-traditional glass-making technique she has developed to create this sculptural piece. Taking inspiration from Han dynasty jade burial suits, 392 small narrow rectangular panels of clear glass have been strung together using bands of black silicone to create a three-dimensional object made of flat glass. The overlapping black lines of the silicone create a sense of kinetic motion and add strength to the structure of the glass to create an object that is both lightweight and strong, yet visually fragile.
