Loewe Foundation and the jury have nominate Lene Bødkers three glass sculptures, 'Walking Stone’ for the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2023.
Nomination: These glass sculptures express a close relationship with nature and reference the interconnectivity between evolution and natural features of the landscape. The works have been created using a lost wax technique and cast with a carefully planned and controlled use of colour to create differing levels of opacity throughout. This manipulation of light is further explored by creating contrasting matt and smooth areas across the surface of the works, by using several different hand finishing techniques including grinding, chiselling and polishing to create a tactile, nodular, texture that demonstrates the artistic possibilities of glass.
