Series of handmade hourglasses from borosilicate glass with cold bonding, filled with melted ice core samples from Antarctica, certificates. Dimensions variable.

Timekeepers is a series of hourglasses that are filled with melted glacier water from Antarctica. Just like regular hourglasses, these water glasses can be turned around. This symbolic act of turning provides a sense of responsibility, hope and care concerning global glacier retreat. Each unique glass sculpture comes with an accompanying signed certificate that provides the specific ice core sample information, i.e. the exact drilling location, at what depth the sample was drilled and the approximate age of the ice.
