For me, the most characteristic and at the same time fascinating thing about the Loetz glasses is their incredible liveliness, which comes out through different viewing angles and different incidence of light. I wanted to transform similar effects on metal plates and so I started experimenting with different materials like stainless steel and aluminum. After some time and many attempts, I finally succeeded and the works now shimmer and shine through moving light incidence.
