Glass paste, before designating a process for shaping glass, was a material resulting from the hybridization of glass and ceramic materials. At present, I'm working on combining them, considering above all the symbolic symbolic dimension of their specific physicochemical qualities. Glass is an amorphous structure subject to flux and reversibility, whereas ceramic ceramic materials are fixed and irreversible.
Glass is to time what marble and bronze are to space.
Glass, "fluid," reflects the passing of time, a duration that cannot be grasped, while ceramic materials, "fixed," refer to the crystallized time of memory. For me, it is about listening, not to the earth, not to glass as materials, but as materials, because it is in the process by which they are shaped that they reveal the meaning they carry. For me, they hold an idea of time that I seek to uncover.
