Nordic Mood collection is the result of an experimental design project and an extensive material research, which focuses on aesthetic and functional possibilities of bringing together ceramics and glass during the glassblowing process. The project involves the development of new specialised ceramic clays from raw materials, with thermal shock resistance and durability required for glassblowing and experimentation with glassblowing methods along with techniques for exploring the relationship between two materials.
Using ceramics directly in the the glassblowing process opened up many possibilities in the creative process. This project utilizes the outcomes of the extensive research the designer has undertaken while developing his master’s thesis project in terms of material research and technical knowledge. This displays various ways of joining two materials together while exploring the aesthetic and functional potential of this combination in terms of texture, form, colour and finishes.
