‘GLASS APPLIQUE’ WALL SCULPTURES

PRODUCER: VAN TETTERODE GLASS STUDIO, ca 1960

MEASUREMENTS: H 30, W 29, D 9 CM

PRICE ( SET ): 850,- EURO

Dutch design! Very expressive glass sculptures created by van Tetterode Glass Studio ( Amsterdam ) ca. 1960.
By methods of merging several pieces and layers of cracked and molten glass the maker has composed these fantastic abstract sculptures that provides a diffuse colored atmosphere of light to the surroundings when lit. Looking at the color patterns of this specific pair, these lights supposed to be kept together as a set.
The bright color schemes, the geometric patterns and the ‘naive’ finish strongly reminds of the paintings and sculptures of the COBRA art movement. It’s not surprising van Tetterode has executed artworks for several well-known Dutch artists such as Karel Appel, Corneille and Andries Copier.

Perfect complementary set of lights for a ‘mix and match’ interior. Each fixture has one E27 bulbholder, suitable for modern LED bulbs. Each light weight 5 kilo. Due to the melting process of the glass there are no really sharp edges on the glass.

The term ‘Brutalism’ ( derives from the French word brut, meaning raw ) was coined to describe an architectural movement that emerged in the fifties of the 20th century. It has been adopted by the realms of art and design to refer to expressive, attention grabbing ‘naive’ creations made of rough, high relief materials that forms a contrast with the polished, smooth and sophisticated ( related artists are Paul Evans, Henrik Horst and Paul Kingma ).
