Ten days workshop learning how to design products using glass as the main material, learning by experience the constrains and potential that glass gather.
“The ephemeral and sublime qualities of glass provide a rich palette for innovation and intervention. Working immediately with glass forming processes such as hand pressing, blowing, slumping, flameworking, stained glass and glass sheet forming, we will examine glass making as an art form with pertinent methodologies for today’s design disciplines.”
During this ten days workshop, I've made a different array of objects such as glasses, solitary vases and prehistoric inspired letter openers.
Location: Domaine de Boisbuchet, Lessac, France.
Teachers: Architect Paul Haigh, Steve Gibbs (Corning Museum of Glass), Charles Parriot.
Boisbuchet colaborates with Centre Georges Pompidou and Vitra Design Museum.
