Glass type (experimentation with glass)

Glass type is the result of a one week-workshop, followed during my last MA year, led by Ronan Bouroullec and swiss glassblower Matteo Gonet.

I experimented with the possibility of creating precise coloured marks on glass. This was done as part of the blowing process, rather than applying a coloured print on the glass afterwards
I used the same principle of the stencil technique. The coloured glass powder is deposited into special grooves made on steel moulds, which then melts when the hot glass is pressed on to it. The glass powder sticks to the hot glass leaving a mark.
