mould Machine - heart of glass

ECAL with Matteo Gonet
In collaboration with Stanislaw Czarnocki.

Included in ECAL's research program "Heart of Glass", this project explores the use of alternative materials as moulds for firing glass in a kiln. In collaboration with Matteo Gonet glass workshop, we run three rounds of experiments with different high temperature resistant material. We focused our tests on creating the mould by layering different isolation fiber plates cut by CNC. This technique was used by Baker Wardlaw to create the central pieces of the "Heart of Glass" exhibition held on ELAC February 2015.
