Glass meets metal

  • • Luca is both a glass artist and a goldsmith
  • • She has a very experimental approach
  • • She specialises in optical grinding

Luca Kohut-Görömbei started working with glassware as a small child, she says she was quite enchanted by glass at the age of 12. Because her parents saw that her intentions were serious, they made her a small workshop in the basement and allowed her to come to Budapest from the rural town where she grew up to study weekly. At MOME (Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design), in addition to the title Silicate Industrial Designer, she also obtained a design manager qualification, and then learned goldsmithing. She prides herself on cultivating both professions at a high level so she can make her own jewellery. She is constantly experimenting in the fields of glass grinding, melting glass in electric kilns, glassblowing in hot furnaces, cold glasswork, laminated and layered glass. Her favourite moment is when she takes a piece of glass in her hands, which then turns into an object in them. She opened her own workshop in 2008 and launched her brand called Üvegház (Glasshouse) in 2013.

Grace Of Glass

This glass sculpture focuses on the optical effects of glass. Between two soft grinded edges, the material shows interesting pictures and creates a non-existing, turning surface inside the object. The outstanding clearness of the glass makes it seems like it is made from water.

Lilac Necklace

This pendant was made from a piece of Murano glass mosaic. The soft texture was achieved by grinding and drilling. The silver setting was inserted through the glass like a needle.

Water Lily Bowls

The Waterlily bowls were created by slowly heating the glass to form liquid aggregates and playing with temperatures. Water lilies inspired the shape and colours of the bowls.

Drop Vases

Free blown, grinded vases for decoration shaped following the natural movement of the fusing glass. The thick clear layers of colours creates a special optical effect of airiness and luminosity. Different finishes were uses to achieve miscellaneous results.
