Optical Wand Limited Edition Sculpture

Playful and poetic, Catarina Carreiras’ Optical Wand Limited Edition Sculpture is comprised of a sinuous dome of glass that effortlessly grows from a wooden base. Resembling a butterfly net, the whimsical sculpture acts as a glass cloche to highlight and display food or decor. The intriguing object was designed while participating in a rigorous artistic residence with Fabrica, an innovative art and design research center in Italy, and debuted at the 2011 exhibition “€œHere & (T)here” which was edited by Secondome, a renowned Roman design gallery. The pieces in the series investigate the usual marriage between two essential elements – borosilicate glass and oak wood. In Optical Wand, this hybrid of materials creates a delicate balance of fragility and solidity. Focusing on form rather than function, the whimsical object would be at home sitting quietly on a dining table, trying to catch pieces of food as if they were butterflies.
