Through the fire

Julius Weiland is best known for his glass sculptures which he creates by accumulating glass pieces like for example glass tubes, glass strings or flasks. Often using manufactured glass, he is also using hand made elements from blown glass he is letting produce in a hot glass studio in Berlin.

Julius Weiland is best known for his glass sculptures which he creates by accumulating glass pieces like for example glass tubes, glass strings or flasks. Often using manufactured glass, he is also using hand made elements from blown glass he is letting produce in a hot glass studio in Berlin. The key element in his work is that he fuses the elements with heat and deforms the original pieces in this process.

Besides his glass works he is also working two-dimensional. His paintings are a series of portraits of colleagues, close friends or family, carried out in a simplified style, but keeping the characteristics of the depicted person.

His works are part of museum collections world wide - most recently a work was added to the contemporary glass collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
