The Graal technique was developed by Swedish glass workers during the 1920’s. The name “Graal” means “Grail” in English.

It is a multi-step process whereby a ‘blank’ of coloured glass is shaped on the blow pipe, knocked off and annealed in the kiln over night. Once it cools down to the room temperature, the design is applied by the sandblasting process. The blank is then brought up slowly in a kiln, picked up on the blowing pipe, reheated and shaped and blown into the shape of a bowl. – Naoko Takenouchi

Bayot considers working with precious metals and gemstones a rare privilege that comes with the responsibility to honour these materials with lasting designs. In this context he is often reminded of the Italian inspired slow food movement – being mindful of earth’s resources we are trusted with. Bayot strives to live up to this excellent quote by Piet Hein; “true design asks one thing of us: to uncover what it covers.”

FEATURE TESTIMONIAL

I have been living with William Liao’s exquisite painting, Mountain #1, for a few days now and feel compelled to tell you how much I love it. Actually, I loved it as soon as I saw the image Heather emailed. However, having it here with me is more than being able to look at something pretty from time to time. It is both an intellectual and emotional experience. I pass by several times a day and each time I view the painting I see something new – and this causes me to have new thoughts and feelings.  Truly, it touches my mind and heart.  The colour, depth, and contained energy continue to amaze me. Clearly, William is an exceptional artist and I feel so fortunate to have one of his fine works. Please pass along my heartfelt thanks and appreciation.

Also, thank you, Heather for helping me. I adore this painting and am excited about the next one. No rush – there is much joy in anticipation.

– Lloy Falconer
