For Karin Sander’s glass project, she was invited by Berlin Glas e.V. to use their studio to work on a collaborative project using this traditional material. She began by approaching glass analytically in an attempt to understand its consistency and qualities. She then used this as a basis to develop objects that would reveal these experiences. Glass’s viscosity and its reaction to heat and cold define its processing and design more than any other characteristic. Karin Sander thus took the fundamental steps of glass casting and dripping as her starting point. “Liquid glass spreads out on a surface, slowly welling over its edges, until it solidifies into drop-shaped offshoots. Multiple layers are cast on top of each other, and, according to their specific consistency and viscosity, each of them will obtain its unique shape. These cooled-down glass sculptures, slowly solidified flowages, are reminiscent both of lava and ice.” (Karin Sander)
