Glass artist Steffen Dam created the Flower Block, an artwork that intuitively evokes botanical drawings.
Steffen Dam’s artwork Flower Block reminds us of the fossilized biological and botanical slides used in scientific research with a soft color palette. Dam studied hot and cold glass working techniques and did many experiments with glass. His technique involves blowing, casting, fusing, engraving, cutting, drilling, grinding, and polishing.
Each of the 24 blocks in his work Flower Block represents the artist’s interpretation of different parts of the flower. Rather than a direct representative method, he works intuitively to produce a holistic floral image.
