Gallery label
Maria Bang Espersen (born 1981) ‘Soft in White’ and ‘Soft in Pink’ 2018 Through a dynamic process of repeatedly folding and stretching glass, Maria Bang Espersen’s work is as much about the performance as the result. As if frozen in movement, the fineness of the filaments allows the glass to retain a soft, seductive quality. Denmark Glass, hand-blown and formed Purchased with the support of Dr and Mrs Steve Groves C.9&10-2019
