Glass Baskets

These glass baskets are made with the lost-basket-method, invented by Arnout Visser. A basket of withies is made, this are the strong and flexible willow stems. This withy-basket is soaked in water for a long time. Then a large bubble of liquid glass is blown. When this hot glass is blown into the withy-basket, the basket will burn, but not before it leaves a mark of its woven motive in the glass. Out of the fire and smoke from the burning basket, the glass design arises, like a Phoenix. After a careful process of sawing, cutting and polishing, the design is finished. Every glass basket is unique and exclusive in its definition.
