The Aquatic Series is one of several series that reflect experiences and impressions from my time living in Hawaii. Aquatic pieces focus on stone, water, and the shoreline, trying to capture the essence of a certain coastal environment. It is probably the most challenging series that I have worked on to date since the physical properties of the colors used are not very compatible with each other. In the beginning, I would lose control of the pieces in the blowing process or they would crack during annealing. It took several gradual adjustments to ensure that pieces would survive intact and the risk of loosing a piece remains higher than with any other series. Fortunately, I kept all the pieces that did not make it and eventually I designed a new series based on the Fragments of unsuccessful Aquatic pieces.
