For many years Edyta Baranska has worked closely with interior designers and architects in the hospitality, commercial and residential sectors, and has drawn on these experiences to realise a new product platform of unique and functional glass furniture and accessories.
In this first collection we see no less than twenty five bold designs that show us a completely new way to mix textures and colours into glass using high temperature fusing technology. The collection consists of coffee/occasional tables, wall art, mirrors, bowls and lighting to provide designers with a family of products with coordinating colours and effects.
The designs are a culmination of eighteen months of research and development not only in the composition and colourways possible, but also in the methods needed to create these designs when fusing two or more layers of glass together and combining that with metal oxides, paints and textures under varying degrees of high temperature.
Using metal oxides creates a far ranging palette of polychromatic effects and bubbles within the layers of glass, and is prevalent throughout the collection. This fusion of natural pigments bring to life the designs and further enhances the moulded textures in the lower layer of glass, as seen in the vibrant and intense Big Blue! In Moon Shadow the careful use of oxides and paints creates a representation of the moon and in Quiet Lake, the liberal use of green and blue oxides mimics that of a natural lagoon.
Fusing multiple layers of glass a feel of depth and solidity, and in Gold River Baranska have fused three of together to create a wonderful 3D effect that accentuates the texture/impression placed into the lower layer of glass during the kilning process.
