'Fitchia Manga' is a unique glass artwork by the Canadian artist, Michèle Oberdieck.

Exploring balance and asymmetry through colour, form and surface decoration, Oberdieck presents her sculptural works as a gesture, an expressive mark, often composing individual elements together, she is fascinated in the narratives that can be created. 

Oberdieck’s surfaces are achieved by using the classic Swedish technique of Graal; pre-made glass ‘cups’ are externally cut with motifs and patterns. These ‘cups of colour’ are then re-heated and re-blown, as the form evolves and enlarges, these incised marks blend, soften and distort, creating ethereal watery effects.

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