EXPERIMENTAL EXPLORATIONS OF COPPER & GLASS TRANSFORMATIONS
The Limited Editions Alchemist & Natural Ruby represents an excerpt of the experimental glass and copper research of Studio Milena Kling.
Following the fascination of traditional of alchemy and the intriguing transmutations of metals into treasure, the Editions tell the story of an exploration of color and texture. Every single object of the mouth-blown glass Editions is shaped and tinged by copper forms. At 1160° the fluid glass fuses with the delicate mold and adapts its silhouette and texture. A chemical reaction with the oxidized copper creates patterns of permanent ruby color. Small differences in timing, heat and flow create unique patterns of permanent natural ruby color. A palette of textures and colors from warm gold to ruby red is eternalized in every piece of glass and a delicate glance is reminiscent of its copper origin.
