Glass Cup Protoypes

2011, Jan-May

– dialogue between designer and glass artisan

As an exercise in communicating design concepts to others (particularly fabricators), the Glass Product Design course at CCA held a contest each week to design a cup around a particular theme. After presenting our drawings, the gaffer (Colin O'Reilly, a glass student) chose a cup for immediate prototyping. What a first seemed like a clear direction would begin to transform: either due the properties of the material, or the aesthetic preference of the gaffer, the characteristics of a certain tool, or a happy accident. I found myself decoding Colin's style and designing things I knew he would be good at making, or at least willing to test out. In this way I got several opportunities to prototype my cup designs. I think the maker's sensibility is just as important as the technical properties of the material being used.
