Romina Gonzales catches the fleeting beauty of a distressed sphere of glass in Bloom; an evolving collection of sculptural lighting by ROMINA GONZALES X THE THIRD ROOOM
Release is an expressive light fixture formed using a delicate cooling technique to create a fractured opening. During the blowing process, an area of the form is meticulously cooled down until it naturally ruptures, thus releasing the built up tension created by the temperature difference. The opening is then carefully heated to soften and remove any sharp edges, making the sculpture safe to handle and touch. The glass form resembles an exploding light bulb..Bloom exemplifies beauty in the complimentary yet seemingly opposing qualities of nature and existence.
