Alain Rouveure Glass
Alain Rouveure has always been fascinated with the process
of making glass and he now works closely on designs with the Nepalese glass artist Gopi Kandel

Gopi's small workshop is tucked away in a small village of
the Kathmandu valley. Very much like during Roman times,
Gopi creates intricate patterns with jewel-like colours by slowly
working in and fusing cobalt, red copper, pure silver and pure gold
into the molten glass making each piece absolutely unique.
The colours of his work alter as the light of day changes.
