"Gentile stabillity (or crash)"

Through the challenging technique of the ‘Pate de verre’ which allows me to create very gentle strings of glass and weaving them in an horizontally and vertically motion, I shaped a ‘gentle tower of stability’. The stability of the entire tower is very delicate, somtime look a bit fragile and about to crash, yet it is very vivid and strong enough to maintain the shape for ever. This gentle stability (or crash) is based not on the importance or the qualities of one glass string by itself, it is only achievable by the synergy that all strings create together , even in a difficult times when evrything seems to collapsing ,when evey emerging into one entity all their qualities and supporting each other
