Light by designer



Designer name: Feyter, Remy de
  1970 -
In 1993 Remy de Feyter began to work in the neon sign industry. It is a job working with glass, gas and graphics. Designing a sign is a great part of the process. A few years later Remy started using neon as an art form. Sculpting neon in 3D is a challenge and a welcome relief for neon benders that want to do something else then just making text all day. With neon you are bound by hollow tubes, but you are able to use a wide range of collars and diameters. Using ‘Hot glass’ got his attention because Remy discovered, it is also possible to mix it with a neon/vacuum technique. He started experimenting by mixing different gasses inside the hollow glass objects. The gasses inside create a special ‘plasma’ glow when connected to a high voltage transformer. This makes the hollow shape of the glass the most interesting to Remy, because that’s where the light will flow, changing its collars and does its magic. These techniques used are only known by a few people in the world and are rarely applied in this kind of art form, making each object a unique piece of art.
