The central theme of Anna Torfs’ work is glass’ ability to capture, reflect and absorb light. Her glass objects, rendered in a beautiful range of deep colours, feature a striking combination of strict geometry and organic, poetic nature. Anna’s ongoing exploration of the phenomenon of glass has yielded works that invite the viewer to engage with more than just the surface.
All of Anna’s pieces are handmade; her work is infused with her wonder at how the techniques of glass blowing, cutting and sanding – which have hardly changed over the past 200 years – can lead to contemporary objects. Because each piece is carefully crafted by hand, no two pieces are identical. Slight variations in appearance make each piece a unique object of art.
