Norgesglass

A series of 10 pieces.

The artists own words from his Instragram account:

“My thoughts of the hour glass (No. 2), representing the self isolation we are living in, at this moment, as the snow falls and melts outside, I’m reminded, how fragile this moment really is. Sitting home with family watching my internal world wonder around me, the laughs and joys as the kids scream and play, the coffee in my hand warming me as I look out, I hear noises from all corners of the house, we are finè, this will pass but I will enjoy the moment of stillness gifted me.”
