Wooden Glass Vases
Each glass vase that you can find with these pieces is blown directly into a shape cut from the wood.
While the item lies flat on a table, the glassblower can help it to form a precise shape, making each item fit together as if they were puzzle pieces.
It is art that requires precision, care, and technique since the blown glass is hot enough that it could ignite the wood.
Additional Wood and Glass Elements
Slagerman created another series of wood and glass displays that feature two interlocking pieces that seem as if they were a puzzle as well.
He enjoys the way that glass features in modern architecture, fuses with wood, and creates unique shapes from the hands of the artist.
He enrolled in the glass program at UCLA’s School of the Arts, studied glass work at L’Ecole de Beaux Arts de Aix in Provence, and worked in various studios around Europe to perfect his work.
Slagerman would then create his first studio in 1990 in France.
You can find many of his works housed in the permanent collections of Museums in Paris, Milan, and Marrakech.
