Ibiza, by Montreal-based artist Lorna Bauer, is a series of sculptures as necklaces. Handcrafted through the process of flameworking (a strain of glassblowing), Lorna developed these works out of a response to the writings of Walter Benjamin and William S. Burroughs (the former's letters to his lover, the latter's descriptions of "color walks" and colour poems).* In an earlier series of sculptures, also titled Ibiza, she produced large glass forms derived loosely from Burroughs’ dream machine invention, cut to shape, fused and strung together to become tall hanging mobiles that emanate washes of colour as light passes through.

For her Ray~Ray jewelry edition, Lorna has produced micro-versions of the original with slight deviations. Here, coloured molten glass is manipulated to possibly resemble creatures seen through the water that surrounds the island of Ibiza. The former pieces sometimes 12 to 15 feet in height were suspended from floor to ceiling, objects held in tension with the space around it. Here, for Ray~Ray, the body replaces that space and the wearer becomes the vertical frame from which the jewelry is hung.

Ray~Ray commissioned writer Ania Wroblewski to respond to Ibiza. Her text, La Plage, will be included with each edition.
