Smoke Murano Glass Sculpture

€1.500,00 EUR

Discover Bibi van der Velden’s fascinating new interpretation of smoke’s twists and turns: the Smoke Murano Glass Sculpture. To debut the sculpture, Bibi has collaborated with perfumer Lyn Harris of Perfumer H, to create a scented candle that is placed within the vessel. The scent, called Stone Dust, is inspired by Bibi’s home in Portugal, evoking the country’s rugged landscape. Once the candle burns down, you can transform this piece into the desired use, making it a truly versatile and captivating work of art.

The sculpture is crafted in a limited edition of 55 pieces, with each vessel numbered and signed.

* Only available for pick up in our Amsterdam Studio

Created in collaboration with Murano glass artist Aristide Najean, this glass vessel replicates smoke’s plumes and wisps in the mercurial medium of Murano glass.

In glass whose form ebbs and flows just like a line of smoke, this piece is a striking example of how Bibi captures life’s fluidity in sculpture. The piece is designed with a tactile, three-dimensional line of smoke that adorns its outer surface, while opaque swirls of smoke create a beautiful pattern inside the sculpture.

The candle’s scent, Stone Dust, takes inspiration from Bibi’s home in Portugal, evoking what Bibi describes as “the smell of burnt wood from forest fires; the scent of stones when working in my atelier; of pencil shavings when sketching, but also the flowers and fruits I see in my garden".

Capturing life’s fluidity

“I started our creative journey by collecting materials that I found on my long walks on the beach and in the woods in Portugal. The smell of burnt wood from the forest fires in Portugal, the scent of stones when working in my atelier, the scent of pencil shavings when sketching, but also the flowers and fruits I see in my garden.”
