Description

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.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
