Theme of the workshop 'Makers x Makers'
For as many years that hand made glass has been made, a particular format has been used. Whether mould blown, or hand finished the final object is close to being finished when broken off the iron. Of course cutting is used to decorate and to finish rims. But what if the cutting was very much part of creating several finished objects from the original one.
In the case of lamp working, it may be that you start with several components and later fuse together.
Participated students are being asked to create one blown object that is then cut up to produce several other objects, or to re arrange the original object using every part that has been shaped.
