THE PROCESS

Jochen Holz favours borosilicate glass due its resistance to heat and suitability for lampworking. Lampworking is a technique in which glass is heated using heat and torches, with Jochen being one of few makers practising the method in Britain. He crafts each piece by hand, creating unique, contemporary objects which are functional as well as decorative. No two pieces are the same, due to the handmade nature of his work.

Maker's Quote

Improvisation means the risk of failure, which energises the process and keeps my practice alive. I tend to make decisions during making, allowing an improvisational flow into the work. It's about navigating possibilities and restrictions of the material, identifying 'moves', and staying very much in the present.
