Dinuovo (video)
Designed by UUfie in collaboration with Jeff Goodman Studio

Found in the book “The History of the New World” by Girolamo Benzoni, an Italian historian and traveler. It tells the story of Christopher Columbus standing an egg but not particularly difficult especially once breaking it.

This story inspired us. What if you were to stand an egg on its tip, with no influence of other components, except perfection of orientation. DINUOVO is a collection of hand-blown glass using center of gravity to create an object balancing like an upside down egg. Contradicting in nature, it conveys harmony between imperfection and perfection.

DINUOVO is used as a light fixture or vase. A yolk represented by an orb of light floating within transparent glass is achieved through layering of glass in gradating thickness. At the large version, they are nearly half meter high and 15kg in weight. Besides emphasizing the difficulty and skill required, it has the romantic appeal of glass though impractical and incomplete yet provides new possibilities and curiosity. DINUOVO takes a playful, unconventional direction and challenges the Columbus’ egg.

Flux: Reflections on Contemporary Glass

June 5 – September 21, 2008

Where: New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Glass is a malleable, ever-changing material that can be worked employing a variety of techniques to produce a vast spectrum of works.

It is used to make intricately detailed, fragile vessels yet has the strength and density to be used in constructing skyscrapers.

This exhibition considers the sculptural possibilities of glass, from vessel to minimalist sculpture, blown glass to cast glass, ancient artifact to popular culture icon.

Many of the acknowledged international “masters” of glass are included in the exhibition, among them William Morris, Stanislav Libensky and Jaroslava Brychtova, Dante Marioni, Dale Chihuly, Lino Tagliapietra and Bertil Vallien, as are New Mexico’s own glass artists Charlie Miner, Timothy Horn, Tony Jojola, Stacey Neff, and Mary Shaffer, Jeff Goodman among others.
