New work: Please don't doubt your faith (The holy relics)

In this work, the basic glassblowing tools are presented as holy relics in exquisite vessels. Glass is used to make the tools that create glass art which float in the dome like mysterious ghosts. Inspired by the mythical Kraken and Cthulhu mythology, the waving tentacles are a metaphor for self-doubts, struggles, and failures during the long process of working with hot molten glass. The relics echo the belief in the glass as a kind of religion, the god of glass will always guard its skills, but people who work with glass will always struggle to find a balance and a way out of their uncertainty.
