THE SHAPE OF GLASS COLLECTION
Through out this project I explored and challenged the boundaries of glass slumping. Glass slumping is a tech- nique in which glass objects are made in a kiln by means of shaping the glass over molds through firing them at high temperatures.
In this project the molds are made from ceramics and instead of using them just for the functional aspect of shaping the glass, they become part of the end product. After the glass has taken its shape, it is turned around in different ways and later on assembled with the ceramics to create one func- tional piece. This collection of domestic products has been approached from a very materialistic and technical point.
