‘Fosforit VI’ is a unique sculpture by the Danish artist, Morten Klitgaard.

In the artist's own words:

"My work is driven by the urge to investigate and push the limits of glass as a material. I thrive to develop new ways of working with the surface, discovering new techniques and methods that draw out unique qualities in each final piece.

In my recent body of work I have been experimenting with removing the transparency of the medium by adding layers to the external of the form. Working in this way, I have developed a technique that has an almost glaze-like appearance, where small bubbles burst during the process, resulting in an extremely pitted and textured surface.

Lastly, I apply different metal oxides during the final heating. This results in the surface looking aged, almost weatherbeaten, creating intense and rich patinas, whilst also adding glistening highlights"
