Indefinite Vases by Erik Olovsson Studio
Zuzanna Gasior
Aug 19, 2021

Erik Olovsson Studio has designed a collection of sculptural vases that contrast hand-blown glass containers with wedges of granite, marble and onyx.

The project is an exploration of the relationship between geometric and organic forms – transparent and opaque. Indefinite melting materia interacts with definite angular forms and gravity determines the relationship in between. Indefinite Vases are sculptures or containers. Functional or decorative. The contrast between the cut stone and the form of the hand blown glass emphasizes the relation between space and object, an interplay between a fragile material and its solid counterpart.
