Story of Spring
“My intention was to integrate nature into the installation’s design. The components are organically shaped. Their irregular curves are reminders of the meticulous hand work of the glassblowers. Freedom in form refers to the water and its boisterous potential in traversing the countryside,” says the work’s designer, artist Petra Krausová.
Each of more than 120 bubbles has its own light source which gives the entire space a sparkling cast. “I worked with clear crystal glass with finishes of crackled, sandblasted and platinum painting. The finishes is what gives the overall design a nice, soft colour feel,” adds Krausová.
