Object Mutations

In this project, the limits of a common shape are questioned. When does a bottle stop being a bottle? Do slight changes in a shape matter when this is still accomplishing its function? Do industrial products have personality? Through the repetition and deformation of a simple glass bottle, its shape mutates until it does not exist anymore.

The defformation of the object is done by the manipulation of the mold where the glass is blown. A knife is used to carve the plaster in its most critical shapes.
