Five-Part Black Twill Collection

Time: 07:03:34 — 07:10:50

Tobias Møhl’s ‘Five-Part Black Twill Collection’ features a collection of five hand-blown glass vessels that combine into a single expression of exquisite beauty. Transfused with light, the intricate ornamentation in the glass glows with a soft, organic expression, almost suggesting a force of life that is capable of sprouting new branches and tendrils. These organic patterns could not have been planned or sketched out beforehand but emerge in practice, as Tobias Møhl brings his mastery of ancient glassblowing techniques to bear on the glass, all the while paying close attention to the possibilities that arise in the process, ready to seize them and create new, unique shapes and expressions.

Glass designer, b. 1970

Tobias Møhl’s work is about using Venetian glassblowing techniques to achieve a Scandinavian, rather than a Venetian expression. It is also about seeing the technique as a tool to clarify and refine his personal expression. With painstaking attention to detail and a technical mastery that has been earned over many years, he searches for simple details in glass that can be used to add refinement to the end result. In his artistic practice, he continually explores methods for breaking away from the traditional patterns to discover a new and more organic expression and style.
