PROJECT:
During this semester we will discover and celebrate glass in all its aspects: from glassblowing and lampworking to disforming glass.

The project will start with some material introducties and visits. Based on these discoveries you will design and make glass objects that celebrate: that evoke happines, that jubilate, that commemorate special moments, honor peculiar uses, specific functions, or just revel the experiment.

Along the way we will meet up and exchange with students and professors of HBK Saarbrücken and Prague for talks and workshops and present the results of our the communal workshop at Designblok 2018 in Prague to celebrate Designblok’s 20th anniversary.
