Description

The idea of the “BAUHAUS” vase was to explore the limits of glass deformation with experimentation during the craft process of glassblowing. I also made to celebrate the 100 years of Bauhaus School by using its classical shapes triangle, square and circle to structure the glass ball. The idea was to intervene on the round shape, resulting of the artisan blowing, making provocations to the traditional process of making serial pieces.

The deformation is the result of the interference of iron pieces with circle, square and triangle shape used as a mould. However, the external shape of the ball is organic and in the repetition, each piece acquires a unique character shaped by the glassblower. The base is made in Brazilian wood Cumaru and is used to suspend the glass, allowing stability to the piece, and retains the resulting shape of the glassblowing craftsman. The Cumaru is a hard and resistant wood and is often used in Brazil for outdoors floors and stairs. The idea is to value this beautiful and natural material by giving a new function.

The idea was to intervene in the blowing gesture with an external mold and through experimentation reaching a plastic result of transparency and color valuing the shape and function. The result are unique pieces where weight, lightness and transparency act out together.

The raw material used is glass, doesn’t contain lead in its composition, its recyclable and uses an electric oven, without burning of CO2.
