Description Ore in Sargasso Green and Beige is a unique glass sculpture by the collaborative artists Hanne Enemark (Danish) and Louis Thompson (British). The outer glass form contains a multitude of fine white 'smalto' canes of glass, some of which have been coated in 24ct gold lustre. Before the piece is finished, these are passed through a small hole in the top of the artwork as straight lengths, allowing them to drop into the void below. Further heating and turning the piece, cause these to soften and loose their rigid appearance. The top aperture is closed over, finishing the artwork and trapping the canes inside.

Since studying simultaneously at the Royal College of Art in 2008, Hanne Enemark and Louis Thompson have worked together successfully on a number of commissions and personal projects, becoming increasingly aware of a common interest in the tension between chaos and order, fragility and strength, internal structure and external form.

They have found that taking a more intuitive and performative approach not only results in a magical spectacle but in sculptures that embody their passion for this material with integrity and freshness.

Whilst making these pieces Enemark and Thompson were struck by how the pieces powerfully expressed their creative intent and directly seized upon the drama of the heat of the moment, an intuitive and exciting dialogue between the material and the action of making. They are intrigued by how these intricate, internal fragile structures contradict the calm skin and surface of the glass form that encapsulates this magical and energetic inner world.

Available to commission bespoke in other sizes, colours and finishes.
