Lise Eggers

I’m not generally a huge fan of glass as an art form, probably because I can’t get beyond imagining it tipping off a shelf and smashing into a million pieces on the floor. But I have to make an exception here. Lise Eggers studied glass blowing in Orrefors Glasskola in Sweden in 1988 and graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts for Architecture, Design and Conservation in 2005. Using kiln casting as opposed to glass blowing, she works with solid glass, sometimes shaping its molten form with her own hands. The colours, the translucency and the organic forms are beautiful.  Yup, I like this glass.
