We are in the middle of an adventure. For the first time, we have the means to explore our wonderful universe.
Through my work I want to show that there is more to life than the daily chores. I hope
to call attention to what there might be out in space, and make everyone understand that we are a small but active part of something vast.
Glass was fired in special kilns at 800C as early
as year 2000 BC. This technique is called glassfusing. The egyptians and
romans were the most advanced, and wonderful collections can be seen in
museums in e.g. Corning, New York. In the eleventh century the art of blowing
glass was discovered and glassfusing was forgotten. It was rediscovered
in the USA as late as in the 1940´s.
