Lustre Vessel VIII by London-based glass artist Jochen Holz. The mesmerizing painted effect of the glass is reminiscent of the colourful interplay of oil-upon-water, beneath the sun.

Jochen's design approach is led by the making process and the flow of hot glass. Every piece is unique, individually considered and finished, and made from durable and heat resistant borosilicate glass.Jochen often experiments with tone and shape to create unique glass forms, this collection exploring a wide variety of hues and a density of colour. Iridescent and matt metallic looking surfaces mix with a soft palette of tonal changes on the pieces.

Process

Navigating the possibilities and restrictions of the technique and material, this series of lustre vases employs metallic oxides, painted onto the molten glass, which gives them their iridescent dreamlike finish.
