About l'Atelier de Ness

Agnès K designs and manufactures tiny animals linked to the world of the garden.

These small subjects in spun glass on metal rods are planted in the substrate to create an enchanting universe.

Agnès began creating jewelry in 2003, and glass soon became an obvious choice, because of its diversity of colors, its poetry, its ability to transform and stretch...

It's a wonder to watch the melting process at 1200 degrees, to see each piece take shape... Glass becomes liquid, and the challenge is to make it solid enough to work with: the slightest clumsy gesture can destroy an entire piece!

Armed with a blowtorch, she perfected the demanding art of spun glass, giving life to small, multicolored animals and flowers of striking beauty. This marvellous little world captivates the eye and invites us on a poetic journey.

Agnès' creative process is a feat of concentration and precision. Every gesture is carefully calculated, from the choice of color and diameter of the glass rod to its transformation into a unique, living form, be it a delicate flower, a mischievous hedgehog or a frightened bee.

The Art of spun glass

Torch-spun glass

Spun glass is an ancient technique for making glass beads and objects, dating back to antiquity.

To make spun glass, the glassmaker first heats a glass rod with a blowtorch or in a high-temperature furnace until it becomes soft and malleable.

Then, using a hollow metal rod called a "mandrel", the glassmaker grasps a small quantity of molten glass, gently pulling and stretching it to form a fine, regular filament, hence the name "spun glass".

This filament can be shaped as required to create beads, decorations, jewelry and many other artistic objects. The glassmaker's precision and dexterity are essential to control the shape and size of the glass thread.

Once the pieces have been made, they are placed for several hours in a 530-degree annealing furnace to relieve them of their “tensions” - a guarantee of quality and durability. In this way, the glass will no longer break of its own accord.

Once cooled, spun glass objects can be polished, colored or decorated according to the designer's artistic preferences.

This technique, though traditional, continues to be used in contemporary crafts for its versatility and the beauty of its results.
