“The history of the production of one particular glass factory is recorded in a series of objects under a unified name – Recovered.” The main idea of the collection is to give the glass process waste a new shape and meaning, and above all to preserve its unique aesthetic qualities, which have become the main sources of inspiration. The aesthetics of glass destroyed deliberately and in a controlled manner is evident on every object in the Recovered and Recovered.history series, although the processing techniques and forms are strikingly different. The colour scheme of individual objects reflects the history of glass production of one particular glassmaking studio. The collection consists of three series, each representing a particular type and treatment of waste, and aims to interpret the viewer’s unique aesthetic experience with a little exaggeration.
