|Recycled glass flameworking|
My name is Ivan Bestari Minar Pradipta, I’m from Yogyakarta city Indonesia, just call me Ivan. I’m starting to work with glass since 2011, just by coincidence because I met with one of the only one oldest scientific glassblower (74 years old) in my town (Pic of our early visit in 2011 www.facebook.com/media/set/?se…)|
So I’m start experimenting using flameworking torch that build by the old scientific glassblower, I try to develop flameworking art by my own & youtube as reference. Then I fall in love with flameworking, but using what we have here, and that is used glass. I can’t have the glass rood here in Indonesia, if I imported it will be too expensive for us here. Used glass material is a real challenge for me, but still I won’t give up, until now I still try how much further I can push this material and my skills to make artwork with all this limitation.
Recycled glass flameworking became my style, became my way to express my mind and what I felt, how to transfer my imagination within process of metamorphic from waste into artwork in the burning flame.
