BAUJA / 2018
Glass blown and wood turned.

     BAUJA is the result of working hand in hand with materials and craftsmen of Istanbul. An open approach, sourcing objects, defining new artefacts and working with on-spot collaborators turning wood and glass-blowing. Cam Ocagi Vakfi, 'the Glass Furnace' located at Beykoz / İstanbul Turkey, helped translate a buoy (şamandıra) which is commonly found within the markets of Istanbul into a glass sculpture.

Normally anchored or allowed to drift with ocean currents, instead of being filled with air - now is filled with water. It is elevated by columns that have been wood turned allowing the movement of the water inside the buoy to slowly dropdown.

The sculpture was apart of a speed design exhibition, show both at SALT Galata the art and research institute and Saraçhane Parki in the ruins of a nearly 2,000-year-old church.
