Aurora by Valerie Likhacheva

Vase  /  Abstract
 
Blown, cutting.

Valerie Likhacheva's vases from the series “Aurora” are irregularly shaped by glass blowing and cutting. The name of the series is derived from both Aurora, the ancient goddess of the dawn, and the Aurora Borealis, the northern lights. Both forms of light served as inspiration for the choice of colours and the structures of the vases. Different shades of blue predominate, as well as irregular structures with melted glass sections that are folded, plastically formed and napped. The curved, ribbon-like, intensely coloured glass elements seem to translate the aurora borealis in terms of both shape and colour and transform it into a decoration for the vases. These richly varied surfaces give the vases their special charm and increase at the same time the effect of the light on the glass surface.
