Scandinavian and Venetian glass making techniques come together in Baldwin and Guggisberg's pieces. The sculptural Boat centerpieces are made out of smaller blown and cut glass components nestled (in sand) inside a boat shaped steel hull.

'We are migratory creatures; the history of our species is about journeys, departures, leaving and arriving, starting over. And none more so than ourselves. Our new work is both culturally and personally inclined. An autobiographical touch in civilizational reflection. Wherever man goes he builds, laying down cultural lines which gradually transform into relics and artefacts over time's inevitable march. Urban landscapes and complex designs grow and expand, deteriorate and decay. And on again we move, taking the memories of our exploits with us to use in the next story.' B&G
