The countdown towards our first Milan show is in 10 days! VIP invitations to the WORKs private preview evening goes out this week. We will be giving tours and talks on other days too. We will post a schedule of events in the next coming days. Stay alert!
This week we also share the latest project updates from three of our WORKs exhibitors – Lola Lely, Meret Probst and Helena Karelson. Follow the posts below to see how their projects are progressing.
(Fig 2.) Some of the techniques Lola has been devising to patinate metal includes, burying metal in organic matter (such as sawdust and soil), wrapping, heating, liquid immersion and fuming metal in various chemical solutions. ‘Fuming’ involves suspending metal samples over various strong chemical solutions. The fumes from the formulaes react with the metal and thus, produces a permanent and hardwearing patina on the surface.
(Fig. 4) Newly turned parts for the neck element of the PATINA pendant lights. Lola has selected spalted beech – a rotten timber (which has random patterns and veining) because of its resemblance to marble and stone patterning. The wooden houses are for a second project – PATINA candlesticks.

The molten glass flows evenly inside the mould through the distribution of air from the glass blower, blowing into the long pipe. (Fig. 5) The plaster mould after use.
