Since its inception in 1990, Arcade's history has been punctuated by encounters: between the founder Ivan Baj and numerous glass masters, between water and sand, sea and earth, fresh and brackish waters, between matter and steam, form and colour. Immersed in unexpected contexts or resurfaced from familiar places, these encounters have, throughout time, given birth to collections of vases and recollections frozen in glass. That of Arcade has always been a sensory journey, sight and touch being at its core. Every vase possesses a poetic potential, if only it is envisaged as a fusion of sand and human blow.
