Icebergs and paraphernalia
Peter Bremers new work
Title from title frame.
A DVD produced for Etienne & Van den Doel Expressive Glass Art gallery to promote the exhibition: "Icebergs & paraphernalia: Peter Bremers new work", March 20-April 25, 2004. This DVD is a collection of segments focusing primarily on glass artist, Peter Bremers.
Glass artist, Peter Bremer.
A voyage to the Antarctica in 2001 by Peter Bremers inspires this glass artist to create cast glass pieces representing the icebergs. The viewer witnesses the sights of the Antarctica and then Peter Bremers at his studio in Holland preparing models for these pieces. Once the models are completed, Peter travels to Pelechov in the Czech Republic to have plaster molds produced (there is good footage of this process). While you do not see the casting of glass into the molds, you do see the molds being removed from the annealing oven and chipped away from the glass. Working with a local glass studio, the glass is ground, cut, and polished to achieve the desired finish on each piece. "The exhibition" is a short segment on this video which shows these pieces on display at the Etienne & Van den Doel Expressive Glass Art gallery.
An additional segment "Metamorphosis" shows a team of hot glass workers and Peter Bremers working together to create pieces which Bremers has called "Metamorphosis". See also "The making of the Metamorphosis" (BIB# 95004), which is the same thing.
