Anna Torfs

Design Anna began designing her own glass collections in 2002. Over the years, she has developed two lines: Anna Torfs Basics and Anna Torfs Edition. However distinctive, both collections share the same approach ? contemporary design using traditional glass techniques as a base from which to explore and create. The ability of glass to capture, reflect and absorb light is the central theme in Anna?s work. Transparency and translucency are not always identical. Colour is critical, evoking strong emotions; colours should be 'true'. Cutting through the object like an anatomist, Anna reveals layer after layer to show how an object is built. These unconventional cutting techniques also reveal the contrast between the vibrant centre and the sober 'skin' of her objects. Handmade All of Anna's pieces are handmade in the Czech Republic. Anna's work is infused with her wonder at how the techniques of glass blowing, cutting and sanding - which have hardly changed over the past 200 years - can lead to contemporary objects. To achieve this, Anna has developed new techniques together with great glass masters, bringing fresh and surprising creations to an old tradition. Because each piece is carefully crafted by hand, no two pieces are identical. Slight variations in appearance make each piece a unique object of art.
