Dry vases

Glass foam, 2019-2022

These vases are made from waste glass from the company Maltha. This glass isn’t recycled in the glass industry because it isn’t pure enough. After many tests and experiments, I managed to make the glass expand, giving it a second life. This foam is different from the ones that I am used to making since it is waterproof. Designing vases became then an obvious choice.

The impurities of the glass yield surprising results. Its randomness makes each final object unique. This is a fight over natural and chaotic formation that suggest how a volcanic rock came to be.
