Design

  • Alejandro Ruiz

    I have always been amazed by the magic that is involved in the process of making a hand-blown/hand-made glass object. Most of the time, hand-made products are difficult to predict, to foresee, to design. Their potentialities are only evident when they are being made. Working with companies like Denizli is more of a human experience than a professional one. Either you become friends or you quit.​

    The Turkish word for glass is derived from the verb for melting, flowing, liquifying. For me, 'glass' is a body of works that melt and blend into one, and Denizli glass is an endeavour driven by people as inspiring as crystal glass.​

    In my designs I try to find new ways of using the glass material through shapes and surface textures. Clean, soft lines and contemporary references are important in my work, whether mass produced functional items or handmade art glass. Inspiration for my work derives from urban surroundings and cityscapes, small details or phenomena can materialize as shapes, textures or abstract patterns in my glass objects.​

    ​Erdem Akan is one of the most energetic exponents of Turkish design, creating interiors, products and exhibition designs that combine “East” with “West”, and old with new, reflecting both his upbringing in Istanbul and his design education in Britain. “I love the purity of Scandinavian design, for example,” he says of his influences, “but in Istanbul, nothing is straight, not even the streets, so you’ll see both in my work.”​

    It fills me with great pride to be part of the transformation process from one of the world's elements to a one of a kind fusion of design and craftsmanship. I am fascinated not just by the unique material attributes but also by its (unbelievably] variety and purity, which is why I choose glass as the material of my choice to see my thoughts and ideas realized and mimeographed.​

    During my visit to the factory in Denizli I experienced one of the magical moments in my design practice life, when I witnessed the glass-blowers giving life in real-time, to an object I imagined, fl combination of intellectual and emotional sensation based on a human interaction... Having the occasion to discuss and exchange ideas with the DenizliCam Team always enables me to imagine glass pieces coherent with the nature of this material.​

    Movement, experiment, size, different materials – I am interested in finding new ways to express glass- materials artistic quality. But the technique never outranks the content of the works. Design and art are an integral part of my work; they are different ways to approach the glass material. When making design, I think about the user, when making art, I think about myself. With my artistic work I tell about contemporary matters, about life surrounding me.​

    For me, design is about emotions. Each curve of glass, vase, bowl have a wonderful relationship with some experience on the perception of literature, film, architecture and especially travel, A great inspiration for me is Turkey itself, which I fell in love with, especially thanks to great friends. Great thanks also to the craftsmen in Denizli, who perfectly embody / place in life / my 'crazy' creative ideas. I want my glass to reflect all of these positive emotions.​
