EXHIBITION. ’Cave In Time’ is a poetically frozen moment. Here three mythical yet constant elements surround a viewer: Mother Creation, Eternity and their child Experience. Each serves a purpose in the process of self-realisation as we enter the realm of self-reflection called ‘life’. Through seeming stereotype of vanity and trivia expressed in boldly lustering glass objects presented, the combination of reflective surfaces, ascetic shapes and surrounding atmosphere of still calmness is pointing our wandering focus towards the depths of our existence.


TECHNIQUE. Geometrically interlocking forms have been arranged to fully display meditative beauty of glass, creating visually pulsating objects using highly polished surfaces and masterful light-play. Artworks and furniture pieces by Sabine Mezkaze & Baiba Dzenite are a combination of modern and traditional technology of freely mouth-blown glass played-out in experimental manner, creating yet unseen objects for decorative as well as practical purposes.

ART WITH FUNCTION. Glass Art Objects are classified as ‘art with function’ as collection is featuring small to large flower vases on marble bases or on polished cuts that can be angled to user’s convenience, and mirror art objects of various sizes. The initial idea of artist Sabine Mezkaze creating a make-up mirror for a vanity table for her furniture line has been carried on into more artistic way deepening the philosophical presence reflected in the collection : understanding of ones - self, accepting our features, gifts and flaws. Mirror objects are central - pieces for a personal altar space, for inverted vision and clarity of thought.
