Ludwig Gosewitz found methods to transfer astrological birth constellations in a visual system. Via compasses and colours he translated the scientific knowledge about planets and constellations into geometrical watercolours and gouaches. In 1971 he began to create mouth-blown glass objects. The process of producing the colourful vases and bowls, the working with the hot glass, functioned like an opposite pole to the geometrical and mathematical based drawings in terms of unpredictability and chance.
