Carel van Laere revolutionizes the tradition of Italian tailoring with his transgressive approach as he cuts through the surface of the fabric to reveal the inner workings and he transforms the classic into an unique patchwork of materials and colors.
Hot Worked Fused Cast Glass is a process defined by Artist Nives Marcassoli to create her many layered suggestive glass paintings. Glass is her medium and through the use of fire she transforms this medium in all forms, from powder to sheet glass, into layered and suggestive pieces, wherein an image is trapped in time, encased within the layers of rich colored glass. In order for Nives to get the movement on the surface of her pieces to resemble the surface of a moving undulating body of water, she has experimented and put to work various techniques which she refers to as Hot Worked Fused Cast Glass.
The process is dynamic and intense, imagine pouring from a heavy crucible laden with molten glass at 1200°C ! This little lady rocks ! You can see more of Nives' work at http://www.nivesmarcassoli.com
