This process is designed to showcase the unique qualities of every instance of creative interaction. The process its self consists of exposing the silica in ceramic glaze (which would usually be exposed in the kiln to give ceramics a glassy finish) with the precision heat of the laser cutters beam to create a free-form glass structure.
Due to the liquid form of the glaze (pink before exposure) and the unpredictable nature of the cutter, each piece is completely one of a kind, displaying subtle variations from one exposure to the next, even on different layers of the same piece. Although small, each piece is comprised of a complex internal structure, minor variations in input create outcomes as diverse as tiny glass bubles or delicate glacial tones.
Macro detail of the final outcomes in the context of their input.
Supporting book work centered around de-coding and understanding the sporadic functionality
of the Laser Cutter.
Couple of the better spreads from the extensive supporting research into existing practice that extends as far as Hackspace and Benoit Mandelbrot.
