Bowl made out of gesso with sheet silver and illuminant inside.

This project was developed together with my colleague and partner Sophie Erbacher. We where fascinated by the material gesso and started to experiment with it. By coincidence the material started to fade up when we made the shape. This turned out to be a beautiful play with light and shadow when we put an illuminant inside. We knew about the fragility of gesso, but we thought about it in an artistic way.

It is a play with light, lightness and fragility.
