The last workshop of this second session of Glass is Tomorrow was held two weeks ago at the Royal College of Arts. It has been a great experience to work along students from all over Europe, and to learn from RCA’s tutors Martin Smith, Simon Moore and Liam Reeves.
A book will be published in May, and a series of exhibitions will follow. Please visit Glass is Tomorrow’s website for more information.
Following my selection as a finalist for EGE Glass Contest, I went to Murano in order to meet with glass-master Nicola Moretti, who will be producing my piece, Acqua Alta. So glad to meet with him and discuss the possibilities and technics to create the piece, and to have a sneak peak on Murano’s backstage. Looking forward the Openning, rendez-vous on April the 17th in Museo del Vetro, Murano!
Millenium of Notre Dame de Strasbourg
Liturgical dishes proposal, 3D created by P. Rabil
(2014 – 2015)
On the occasion of the millenium of Notre de Dame de Strasbourg, the Cathedral launched a contest within the Haute École des Arts du Rhin to create exceptional liturgical dishes. The proposition was developed in reference to the Cathedral’s specific architecture : the chalice is composed of an inner mirror polished metallic bowl inserted in a tainted cristal bowl set in a metallic structure alluding to the famous lace-like frontage of the church. The other pieces of the set display the same characteristics in a simpler manner as transparency is accepted for their use, unlike the chalice.
