Imagine the time when glass starts dancing

“I have loved ballet since I was a child. I am fascinated by the grace of ballet dancers, and by their delicate beauty. You see them gliding across the stage with the utmost ease. They are gentle and delicate, but very energetic. How do you convey this impression in a modern light fixture?

To produce it, we have used one of the oldest glass-making techniques: hand-blowing into moulds with an optical pattern. Thanks to this, we were able to transfer the pattern from the mould onto glass. This created a remarkable visual effect to the skirt, and the glass acquired unusual depth. Hand-blowing also allowed us to “spin” the skirt and capture the ballet dancer in the midst of dance. Fluid and energetic, with each piece an original. Exactly as you see them on the stage. I am grateful for the endless patience and skill of our glassmakers, who helped me capture my idea and turn it into reality. We produced the ballet dancer with enthusiasm and in the belief that we can make glass dance”, explains Katarína Kotuláčová, Sans Souci designer.

The skirt of the ballerina can be customised. Besides the colours, the optical pattern is variable as well and, given that it is hand-blown, so is the fluidity and the shape of the fixture.
