Ode al Mar

Her new heart of glass vessels, pendant where enchanting textiles and glass meet, ocean wave weaving tapestry and sea grass tuft tapestry call to mind puffy cumulus nature forms, like some kind of landscape or coral growing at the bottom of the sea.

"I need the sea because it teaches me the best I can be"

The collectibles by Sandra range from glass vessels to tapestry, a mesmerizing pendant where glas and textile is brought to live in an enchanting mix and her wall coverings. They all appear to be morphing or otherwise on the move. All objects created from there one resulted in amorf natural forms and each hold an unique emotion.

They therefore embrace your brain and relax through shape, texture and colors. Her vivid imagination of the unraveling of material form and her thoughts processed in bold colors, various materials, treatments, textures and techniques literally makes you part of her work.

With a human-centric tough to evoke stimulating your own imagination. She builds her latest pieces by hand painting, collaging and implementing 3D techniques for the base forms and translating these with passmenetery, weaving and glass blowing into her handmade yarn landscapes, tapestry landscape & glass vessels.

Their forms invites you to engage with them rather than just look at them. Ultimately, her “little Omen’s as nature, universe and life forms,” are an appeal for “open-mindedness. sensory play and looking forward. They are meant to be hopeful.
