We were invited to participate in a GlassLab “design performance”, where we collaborated with glassmakers producing rapid design concepts in a mobile hot glass lab in front of an audience. These are the ideas we produced.
When a flower or plant is cut and put in a vase, the vase becomes its new “soil”. In this project the vase gives a flower new roots, to make it feel grounded and at home. If the vase is empty, the root suggests a future presence of a flower, making us imagine what may appear.
The test tube-like vases are based on the childhood memory of playing in an abandoned glass factory that used to make scientific equipment.
