Bell Table Side Table in miniature, Sebastian Herkner 2014
The Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner turns our perceptual habits on their head, using the lightweight, fragile material of glass as base for a metal top that seems to float above it. Hand-blown in the traditional manner using a wooden mould, the transparent tinted glass base asserts a sculptural presence in space, contrasting intriguingly with the solid brass frame on top while also forming with it a harmonious unit recalling the elegant curving silhouette of a bell. It celebrates the beauty of the materials with their colours and surfaces, along with the virtues of hand-craftsmanship. The Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner is a masterwork of traditional hand craftsmanship. According to the original, each miniature is handmade, meaning that small bubbles or bumps in the glass are a characteristic feature.
