These NEWSPAPER VASES incorporate wet newspaper, traditionally a common tool used during the glassblowing process. After a while the original mould-shapes disappeared and the heated glass cut its way through the burned material. The process allows the creation of a unique glass series.
Glass powder – originally used to dye products – became a tool for the creation of patterns on the product ‘s surface. This was more experimental and sought to overcome the traditionally elaborate process. The technique of using stencils offer the opportunity of a simple and unique serial production.
