The glass kitchen island
In this kitchen island, Irma expands on the formation and layering language of her glass series and once again refers to natural elements that inspire her work.
This item explores the relationship between the geometric and the organic; while some of the pieces’ elements keep to symmetrical repetitions, others erupt into glorious, abstract shapes.
The finished pieces blur the line between still and life like objects, while capturing the natural instincts for growth in the material, the maker and the viewer.
In this work, Irma finds the piece’s forms by following the curve of the glass so that the sculpture evolves from a structured, predictable object into a freely flowing work.
The kitchen island serves a number of purposes. In addition to being a visual anchor in the space, it also helps to increase the room’s functionality and efficiency.
Layers of glass produce a functional work of art in space.
