Handblown & cut glass with steel


£ 21000


'Calibrated to Balance' is a unique artwork by the American and Swiss artists, Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg. Exquisitely handblown and cut to the highest quality and refinement, the elements have been composed and suspended on a steel frame ready for wall hanging.

Philip Baldwin (1947) and Monica Guggisberg (1955), have been a collaborative team for over forty years. They share an instinctive appreciation for the subtle blending of art and design, functionality and abstract expression, combined with a love of material – especially glass.

Increasingly they have become more sculptural in focus, while seeking to imbue their work with a deep connection to archetypal forms and shapes, and striving for the highest level of craftsmanship. They address eternal symbols of human culture and history, primarily through blown glass, but also using steel, and constructions in other materials.

In recent years large installations and major exhibitions in public spaces, such as Canterbury Cathedral in 2018, and The Glasmuseum Ebeltoft in Denmark 2020-2021, reflect their concern for the shared conditions of our times, highlighting some of the challenges while continuing to express their love for beauty in form and object.

The artists can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
