Soraa Glass is the creation of Korean-born, Tāmaki Makaurau based designer Jark Pane. Her multi-disciplinary background in landscape architecture, spatial design, graphic design, and classical music influence the dialogues around her work. The confluence of movement & stillness within space is predominantly investigated through the quiet yet commanding presence of glass.
Each piece is made following the lost wax casting process, a labor intensive practice of patience. Fettled, kiln-cast, and polished by hand. Jark refined this technique when she assisted Katherine Rutecki during her formative years working at Lukeke Design. In 2017 the Lukeke team visited Murano, an Island in Italy known for its long tradition of glass-making to attend a masterclass by Maestro Davide Fuin. It was after this period of meeting Venetian glass artists and designers that Jark began exploring blown glass inspired by her time spent in Venice & Florence.
