The collection of Rotterdam based designer Selma Hamstra was launched during Milan Design Week 2021. 'Her Masters Voice' collection contains glass designs that are created to question the craft. Searching for a balance between the skills of a master glassblower and their apprentice. The collection is made up of objects that invite viewers to examine craft and the meaning of mastership. Providing a stage to let questions arise; do you see the qualities of the master and how do we value the imperfections from the learning hand of a young craftsman? What does it mean to be a master? Is the quality of education good enough to become a master? The vase is designed to emphasise the fine balance in skills, to be a centre piece in a space - with or without a clear function.
In her work Hanna is constantly studying, copying and transforming the everyday objects we surround ourselves with. These objects have an immense influence on how we experience the world and are often taken for granted. For her, it's about exploring the never ending flow of potential and finding new interpretations hidden in our daily lives. With the project 'Stages of the ordinary' she created a set of design principles that continuously generate new structures by combining and transforming elements from context, history, material and technique.
