Flavie Audi is a French-Lebanese artist; she graduated in 2010 from the Architectural Association, RIBA Part II, London, in 2014 from the Royal College of Arts, with a MA in ceramics and glass, London. Her works seeks to define a new type of aesthetic and physical materiality. “Works translate the mechanism of life and light and resemble fragments of an ethereal landscape or geology,” Audi writes on her website. “The forms and gestures found in it capture a fleeting, living energy and suggest a certain ambiguity, hovering between digital screen and celestial body.”

In the series Fluid Rocks, she turned glass into colorful translucent blobs with smooth surfaces. Although she keeps her exact techniques a secret, the artist’s incorporation of fine gold and silver into the glass helps to create the color-shifting translucence. This method, which results in the glass simultaneously displaying completely different transmitted and reflected colors, goes back at least to the 4th century as documented in found Roman glass pieces.

You can next see Audi’s work in a group show this October as part of the Arte Sano Biennale at the Museo de Arte Popular in Mexico City. More of her glass work can be found on her website.
