Grail – Incalmo

‘When I started to work at the Van Tetterode glass studio in Amsterdam, new equipment came at my disposal. I was able to develop a new technique. In the Pick-up kiln I hea ted bubbles of glass built up from various layers of colour. Through sandblasting and engraving I was able to draw directly on the glass skin. This worked glass is reheated and covered with several layers of clear glass before being blown into an appropriate shape. The liquid glass and the drawing together form the Grail.’
