This type of specially produced mouth-blown sheet glass is given their tint not simply by adding colour to the batch. Their colouration is created by means of the flash technique: The clear or tinted carrier glass is over-laid with one or two layers of coloured glass thus opening almost unlimited possibilities of variation.

Mouth-blown flashed glass for the Munich project by Mahbuba Maqsoodi!
The wall installation made of light and color takes the viewer with it in its dynamics and at the same time invites you to quiet contemplation on fundamental questions about your own being and the world.
An empty room in the newly renovated Missio Munichhen office building inspired Mahbuba Maqsoodi to create her work entitled “Sail”.
The artist with Afghan roots and a very eventful life story created a permanent wall installation made of glass, which now welcomes missio visitors in downtown Munich.
