Collection of the Artist.

Made during a residency at the Robert Niederer Hergiswil glass factory near Luzern.

Lijn was there to work on a series of Heads. These heads were part of the female forms on which she has been working on since 1979. Having scavanged around the factory looking for forms and materials, she came upon a metal cone form no doubt used for more practical objects and interested in them in particular because of their softness and their emptiness.
