Joaquim Falcó y Meritxell Tembleque

We feel our work as an extension of nature. We are interested in this feeling of unity. For us glass represents, like no other material, the constant flow and transformation of matter.
We feel glass as an expression of the polarity of nature: the solid and the liquid, the permanent and the impermanent; as a paradox of the world, of flow and constant change. In our work, we often turn our handwriting into sculptural matter.

Word after word and layer upon layer we create glass volumes with handwritten text, such as stone blocks or wooden logs to sculpt.
Transparency of the glass itself makes it difficult or impossible to understand the message, revealing the mystery that exists in all things and in ourselves. Creating this paradox.
