Atelier du Verre
Martine Durand Gasselin decorates glass. She blows simple shapes and adorns them with oxides and metallic salts in order to reveal emerald greens, ink blacks, sea blues. She adds threads and shadows to the molten material, blowing transparent reliefs.
“Blowing glass is one of the languages of the hand. So simple in fact that blowing a glass requires one year of training… while duplicating it requires ten years”.
