Annica Sandstrom & David Kaplan

LINDEAN MILL GLASS: Annica Sandstorm and David Kaplan

The glass panel BorderLine, is part of a group of panels based on the figure.
The starting point is always a line that expands and transforms as the glass is blown and then slumped flat. Subtle changes in colour and form may suggest a familiar shape or a forgotten memory.
Depending on the interpretation, the glass panel’s fused center line becomes a soft, sensual focus or, an empty space, a void between two solids.
