FROZEN | Glass bowl
Blown glass bowl
The Frozen collection was inspired by the transformation of water into ice. This moment is very reminiscent of the work in a glassmaker shop. Velčovský allows the glass to spill over a metal form and seeks advantage in its natural properties. Each piece traces a unique record of the process, becoming an original. Velčovský found inspiration among pieces of ice created by nature and applied that element of randomness in nature to his craft in the context of glassmaking.
Glassmakers understand that their material always ‘freezes’ at some point in the process and only the most skilled craftsmen are capable of creating a truly unique form. This concept now translates into unique Frozen bowls and champagne coolers.
