Martine - technique

Martine Knoppert works with sheet glass. Her techniques are fusing and slumping. These hot transformations happen in a closed kiln operated by a small computer, a distant process. Cold action like cutting, grinding or sandblasting of rims and surface are also very important for the final result.

Martine Knoppert works with different types of sheetglass. Lately with the coloured glass of the brand Bullseye because they bring so many colours and products. Colours that interact give an exciting and slightly uncontroled result. The cups shown are made of "reactionglass" and bleu colours that contain cupper - the red/grey colour is the result of the reaction.
