Bibi Smit, Clouds, blown glass and projection, dimensions vary from H 40x W 35x D 20 cm, 2021 | Video by Laura Majolino.
The sky unfolds in a way only nature can; I find that really intriguing. Resembling a cumulus cloud, the elements have both light and softness. Each one is unique and freely formed. After blowing, I sandblasted the outside, which gives them a ceramic feeling.
Viewed from every angle, each cloud creates a connection to nature, empowering us to look after it. Similar to the Dutch landscape paintings, the glass forms encase each other in a fluid movement, while the light goes through their empty spaces, showing a delicate silhouette.
