Glass Matters

Glass, we throw it away very easily. Worldwide mass production in fabrics makes sure we can already buy a brand-new glass for 0,50 cent.
However, as a designer and human being we are increasingly confronted with ethical issues, as we become more and more alienated with the products around us. Because be honest, of how many products in your house do you know the origin, social or ecological footprint?

This project takes you into the dying world of glassblowing. Artist’s secrets, the long schooling, extremely high labor intensity, energy and production costs do not make traditional and artisanal glass self-evident. With the brand mark I hope to create value and awareness about the background information of your material environment.
