‘Nature fascinates me and I see things happening in the world that touch me and that I can translate into my glass objects’, says Sabine Lintzen. She works almost exclusively in blown glass, using old techniques and motifs from Italian, Arab and Dutch culture. For the Thread and Tube Field series the blown shapes are covered with a facet-like skin. A murrini technique conceived and consistently developed by Sabine Lintzen. The objects capture light and colour and the forms interplay with the movement of the spectator. The same play of colour and form can be found in her Banda jewellery series and the perfume flasks, water carafes and glasses. With the Oriental Field objects she draws directly on the glass skin using engraving and sandblasting techniques.
