How is the broken glass processed?
Unfortunately and fortunately, visitors to the banks of the Rhine constantly leave behind new material. The Shard Lady frees the beaches from an annoying nuisance.
Collected Shards in Kg
The shards are cleaned and sorted and soon arranged into spectacular photographs.
In the creative process, through playful reorganization, completely new worlds of images are created in specially made moulds.
The next step: potting. Not an easy task if you want to avoid air bubbles as much as possible. To do this, I let crystal-clear and UV-resistant casting resin flow gently into the mold.
After the resin has been able to solidify for several days, the mature work of art is removed from the mold and the edges are carefully reworked until it fits.
Framed in a high-quality aluminum frame from the manufacturer “Nielsen” and equipped with long-lasting LED backlighting, the fragments finally shine in all their glory.
