Design of the Month · May 2012

  • Garden


    This design was not made for a customer, but for my own pleasure. The picture came to my mind during some travels, and because the image persisted I decided to make it from glass.

    I am interested in our biggest environment, the universe, which is full of unknown objects, rules and materials, although it is our home as well. It is cold and dark, but despite all these unfriendly conditions it gives us a beautiful planet to live on. Glass is one of the best materials to work with on this topic: hard, bright and colourful, and light makes it alive, just like our planet. The panel has schwarzlot painted pieces as well, in order to make the picture more detailed.

    In my work, Glass Eye 2000 is my best tool. I make all my designs with it. It makes not just designing easier, but the assembly too, because I just have to print out the design and I can start the work immediately no more enlarging by hand.

    The final panel size is 45 x 95 cm. It was a big pleasure when I found that painted parts can be designed with the software also if I use very thin lines, imitating the painting.

    Laura Ludvig was born in Hungary in 1979, and she has been attracted by fine arts since her childhood, nevertheless only in the recent years it has finally became her profession. To learn the fine art of stained glassing she was lucky to get from her master, who initiated her to the secrets of the profession. Shortly afterwards she opened a workshop in Budapest, so that she can work out her own ideas and plans. Please visit her website or contact her by email.
