Handblown and cut glass




'Baldwin Guggisberg, 4022 CE' is a unique installation by the American and Swiss artists, Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg. 

Free blown and cold worked glass, aquarium, fish, water and sand.

In the fifth millennium of the common era explorers visiting earth from the Andromeda Galaxy found under the ocean floor, in the west of what had been a group of small islands, a trove of highly decorated pot shards, a few examples remarkably intact. Curiously, they are made of glass and covered with carvings. Their purpose remains obscure. Ornamental urns? The relics of a mystery cult? No theory has been established. However, a signature of some kind was found at the base of one of the objects: “BG Hares Green 2022”. What can it mean?
