Alissa Volchkova is revisiting the industrial and repetitive methods of production, to paradoxically create irregular and unpredictable objects. Indeed, these series of vases are made of 2 parts: the first part – the base – is blown into a mould. The second upper part is the continuity of the mould – an excess of glass formed randomly, and that is usually removed (cut) in glass blowing, considered as a defect. She is keeping and taking advantage of this ‘defect’ by playing with it, exaggerating it, to create a variation of vases that will never be identical.
Please note that this Vase is made to order and each piece is unique, it is impossible to reproduce exactly the same but you can choose any colour your prefer.
