Boris Shpeizman

“To walk on the edge” was always my motto in life. To always walk the line where one art direction ends but a new one is yet to begin; where the possibilities of matter are brought to their limit and where ideas are brought to the absurd – that is where I practice my art. My main goal is to find a way to intertwine traditional glassblowing and contemporary art. Any material reveals its hidden and surprising qualities only in extreme situations.

Glass is the main material I work with. In fact, I do not "work" but rather “tame” it. Transformation of glass from its hot, glory, raw and liquid state into stiff, cold and fragile substance symbolizes in my eyes full life’s cycle. When I work in glass I’m trying to juxtapose the beauty of Nature to Raw glass.
