Sirkel is a tealight holder in colored pressed glass. The color intensity shifts with the changing thickness of the material, leaving the impression of a solid ring of denser color. Sirkel is the Norwegian word for Circle.
Sirkel plays with some of the main properties of glass: transparency, light and color. The idea has been to create a dramatic, dynamic change of thickness (or massiveness if you like) throughout the object - leaving the thinner walls of the bottom corpus close to transparent and turn the top part into thicker, massive ring of solid color – seemingly floating above the table top.
