Meanwhile in Russia

What an adventure! I just spend two weeks in the middle of nowhere (somewhere close to Gdov, Russia). I attended International Ecofest 2016 – workshop of ceramics, glass and metal with the theme of recycling. It was cool to see how people experimented with the materials. Here’s a piece I made together with St.Petersburg based glass artist Igor Frolov with very elementary glass furnace (now I know how to build one on my backyard):

For real, respects to this ultimate DIY guy! All in all there were super interesting artist participating the event and the results can be seen in the premises of Yelagin Palace, in St.Petersburg in exhibition that opens on 19th of August.

Even I went for experimenting and did a test on melting glass scrap on ceramics, here’s a close-up:
