Jeroen and Joep Verhoeven’s Shape Of Water collection fuses time-honoured symbolism and cutting-edge technology to create a sculpture of startling beauty. The bubble appears throughout art history as an image of transience, perhaps most famously in Chardin’s Soap Bubbles (c. 1733-34), which depicts a boy blowing a bubble while another watches. A similarly playful spirit infuses Verhoeven’s Shape Of Water collection, with its billowing, prismatic glass bubbles that look like they might pop at any moment. Yet the method to make the bubbles emerged only after years of research by the artist duo. The highest quality in material and craftsmanship are combined. The borosilicate glass is the most stable and clear glass made by man. Craftsmen in Italy that are used to work on jewellery precision cut the glass to a complex structure that results in an exceptionally strong substance. The Verhoeven Twins have created a unique culture artefact by transforming a timeless image of brevity into a timeless object.
