Night lamps

Blown Pyrex glass and glass foam - 2018

I imagined that the glass foam powder mixture could act as a glass blower when heated inside ordinary glass. With the Rennes 1 university (school of chemistry) scientific glass blower, we did numerous tests by varying quantities, ingredients, and heating techniques. We obtained a series of bulb like objects that varied in transparence, color and shape.

These lamps can be the last object that we use during the day. They are lit up by a 3000 kelvin light that simulates the sunset. The light is soft and looks starlit. The base of the lamp is in ceramic and does not conduct electricity.
