Samuel Weisenborn. Destruction

Event organised by Samuel Weisenborn

Cold work is a sculpting process. Structured cuts run deep into the glass to sculpturally expose textured facets. These unconventional work processes intentionally destroy the shape of the blank with asymmetrically raised cuts juxtaposed against deep stone wheel cut grooves and lenses.
Through the transparency, textures and surfaces an almost chaotic visual ensemble emerges which vibrates and resonates to reveal my inner turmoil and love for the unknown.

Samuel Weisenborn (Germany, 1978) qualified as a glass cutter at the Hadamar glass school.
Studied at the University of Art and Design Burg Giebichenstein in Halle (Saale), Germany.
Since 2009, at his coldwork studio, has focused on lathe work cutting, stone wheel techniques and deepcuts in Schiesheim, Germany.
Since 2005 has worked as a freelance designer and glass artist in many countries, including Germany, Denmark, Sweden, South Africa, England, Egypt.
