Studio Shikai : Ripple

Ripple is a project studying the beauty of glass material. While a focus beam of light projected through a gently rotating mouth-blown glass dome, shadow and light form a breathtaking, ever-changing pattern, where the aesthetic goes beyond the material itself.

The process of making this project includes both tradition glass craft skills and modern production engineering of the moving parts. The duo work closely with materials and found the beauty of glass lies in the uneven surface results from mouth-blowing process, while the craft skill makes the beauty of glass frozen in time, the elegant rotating movement brings the flow of material back to life, as if the dome exists with an uncertainty.
