Filigree glass residency in Nuutajärvi, part 2

The filigree residency organized by Lasiakatemia continued this spring, with an intensive day, during which we made polished versions of the ideas tested during the first part. I developed the idea of using phosphorescent filigree canes, and made shapes that I built into pendants.

When lit with an ordinary light bulb, the pendant seems like a normal lamp, but when the lights are turned off, the pendant keeps glowing like the northern lights. Just like real northern lights, these effects can only be seen when the amount of surrounding lights and light pollution are minimal.

The pendants will be exhibited later this year.
