Jan-Joop Ruisch, a dutchman, who lives and works in the Czech Republic.  His exquisite creations are cast in gorgeous colours and then ground and polished to an optical quality and effect.

About the Work

Lotus was the first ground optical glass object that I began to work on in 1988. Inspired by the yoga position of meditation and introspection of the same name, Lotus is a phenomenon that has fascinated me from that time. My Lotus work comprises an extremely minimalistic form, a polished square sitting on one tip, with the appearance of leaning backwards.  A seemingly simple form, but one which hides unexpected depths.
