I am revisiting the industrial and repetitive methods of production, to paradoxically create irregular and unpredictable objects.
Indeed, these series of vases are made of 2 parts: the first part - the base – is blown into a mould. The second part is the continuity of the mould – an excess of glass formed randomly, and that is usually removed (cut) in glass blowing, considered as a defect. I am keeping and taking advantage of this ‘defect’ by playing with it, exaggerating it, to create a variation of vases that will never be identical.
