First production: 2022
Material: blown glass
Available colours: various pattern – on request
The ‚0I Table‘ is based on an in-depth investigation of the manual process of creating mouth blown sheet glass. In order to produce such a mouth blown sheet a large cylinder is created, which is then cut and ironed down to become a flat piece of glass. 0I Table unites these two production phases – cylinder and sheet, in one object.
The production of both elements requires ten craftspeople. Each individual plays a vital role in the overall process and enacts their own choreography: the movement of the physical labour.
This object reflects upon the subconscious and implicit knowledge that artisans have of manual processes and the cultural value these methodologies carry. In a time when 1’s and O’s are becoming the new universal language, we must seek out new approaches and value systems that celebrate the diversity of different cultural practices.
