Architectural Digest Home Design Show “Sneak Peek”: Solinglass
The Window Series from Solinglass is remarkably different from the company’s other studio collections. Based more on depth than surface, the lightness and breath in the coloration encourages the viewer to explore the uniqueness of the collection from various angles.
This particular piece from the Window Series, Pashmina Cintura, is free blown glass off the pipe, sculpted with cork paddles and creased with a handmade blade which was fabricated specifically for this piece. The multicolored and one-of-a-kind ornament contains fine silver foil directly from Japan. A combination of colors ranging from ruby, apricot, gold and green allows light to pass through giving the viewer a truly intense experience.
Randi Solin, founder and artist of Solinglass, incorporates techniques found in both classic Venetian glassblowing and the American Art Glass movement, but allows her own creativity to shape her artwork. Randi's work has been acquired by the permanent collections of The White House, The United States Embassies in Algeria and Guinea, and has been seen in a number of solo and group shows in galleries and museums across the country.
