The Glass Bags?


These hollow and solid sculptures in the shape of water filled plastic bags examine the boundaries of human perception by manipulating light and space with the optical properties of glass. Made using traditional glass making techniques, this novel approach to the use of the material creates a lens to view the world afresh and the items we perceive around us.  The dimensions vary around 12-17” (30cm-43cm) tall x 7″wide (18cm) x 4” deep (10cm) – Available online here

What happens when Sigga Heimis from Labland pairs up with the team at Corning Glasses GlassLab? You end up with human organs laying all around the room, but thankfully, they are made from glass not human tissue. The GlassLab is the design and production arm of the Corning Museum of Glass. Their collaboration with Sigga Heimis produced a series of human organs including kidneys, stomach, heart, lungs, eyes, intestines, the human brain, and magic. The translucent organs are amazingly details reproductions of human organs carefully blown and stitched together by the glass artisans at the GlassLab. Many pieces required the team work of 3 to 4 glass artisans working in unison to rotate, hold, and position the pieces as molten glass was added.
