Glass Microbiology

"These transparent glass sculptures were created to contemplate the global impact of each disease and to consider how the artificial colouring of scientific imagery affects our understanding of phenomena. Jerram is exploring the tension between the artworks' beauty, what they represent and their impact on humanity."(c)

Повторный линк:
The Kuhn-Bösendorfer is a “grand collaboration” between L. Bösendorfer Klavierfabrik GmbH of Vienna, Austria and Jon Kuhn, the world’s foremost cold glass sculptor. Kuhn’s art is famous for its intricate design, extraordinary clarity and deep radiance. His cubes, circles and works of varied sizes and geometries are included in the permanent collections of over 40 museums and are found in the homes of discerning art collectors and glass aficionados worldwide. And now, Kuhn’s brilliant piano is on display — and available for consideration — in Kuhn Studio’s Winston-Salem, N.C. gallery.

“We knew this piano would turn out great,” Kuhn says, “but nothing like this. It’s vibrant, alive.” And it’s also a Bösendorfer. Bösendorfer pianos are handcrafted in Vienna and have been known for their pure sound and performance grade quality since the company was founded in 1828.

Jon Kuhn (2)

Jon Kuhn is regarded as one of the leading glass artists in the world. His works are featured in more than 30 international museums, including the Smithsonian Institution and the permanent collection of the White House.

"In general, my philosophical expression in glass has always been a reflection of my interest in eastern mysticism. In the past four years, it has come to focus on the inspiration from several personal meditative experiences. For specific subject matter, I make reference to my interests in architecture, music, mathematics, and textiles, as well as the formal considerations of structure and color. The pieces, in a sense, become architectural models for an inner world, possibly a better world."

Koloman Moser


Glasfabrik Johann Loetz was founded in 1840 by Johann Loetz in Klostermuhle, Bohemia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire . In 1889, Loetz exhibited at the Paris International Exposition which is widely accepted as the birthplace of Art Nouveau. The Loetz works became considered among the finest producers of Art Nouveau glass in the world. Most Loetz glass was commissioned by outside designers, and the best pieces were produced with Austrian designers often aligned with the Vienna Secession Art movement, which included Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffman.

"Koloman Moser, and his students, began providing designs to Loetz in the late 1800s, at first in flowing geometric forms. Subsequently, Moser and Josef Hoffmann were strongly influenced by the Glasgow designers, led by Charles Rennie Macintosh, who were exhibiting in Vienna.
Moser's glass designs were most influenced by the English modernist designer, Christopher Dresser, whose influence is strongly apparent in the glass designs created by Moser in 1901 for a Bakolowitz commission, and produced by Loetz. Dresser can be considered the first modernist designer, and this modernist design was immediately adopted by Moser and Hoffman, who together with their students, and fellow modernists, founded the Wiener Werkstätte in 1903 to realize their visions.

Gianni Toso - Master in Glass


"The Toso family has a 700-year uninterrupted tradition of Murano glass blowing, creating glass vessels that became the jealously guarded treasures of Venetian aristocracy. The past 50 years of that history have belonged to Maestro Gianni Toso."(c)
