Gravité – mouthblown vase

Form follows gravitation

Since thousands of years men deals with the manufacturing of glas. At all times glass was cast, layed, blown and pressed in to shape. This wonderfull material combined with the well known production methods yields an indefinable amount of designs. But I felt much more interested in the charecteristics of the material in its molten state. This fascinating, viscous state in which the glass is situated when it comes, with more than 1400 C°, out of the furnace to be further processed. In the shape of a tube the glass flows at a steel plate and shapes it self due to the condition of the material and a pinch of gravity.
