Polar // Votive // Clear
Polar is the first collection launched from Open Archive; originally created in 1974 as a gift to the Opera house in Sydney. Inspired by landscape and ice, designer Göran Wärff created this glass sculpture to double as a candle holder.
Few artists have the intuition for glass possessed by Göran Wärff, who has always treasured classical, masterful expertise in glassblowing and grinding. The play of light within the depths of clear glass and the endless optical illusions produced as the glass breaks light are frequent themes of his productions. Beyond glass itself, his primary sources of inspiration are nature and the play of light within it. “The glowing glass in the oven entices me to explore. Each gather renews my desire to convey the experience of the magic of glass. To make a piece of glass as a carrier of light, sea, and air. I want to create a home for light, for warmth and for sensuality."
