Burning Moulds is an experimental project where paper is used as material for shaping glass. Wet paper is the cheapest and most used tool in a glass workshop. From this idea, different experiments are made to explore the possibilities of the material as a mould. A conversation between the two materials starts in the workshop. The glass gets the texture from the paper, while the paper burns as it acquires a unique pattern.
This project has been selected to be part of the international project glass - hand formed matter, which aims to explore new perspectives for manual glass production in Europe. Read more about it in the following link.
