The project approach was to design a glass luminaire that makes optimum use of the properties of the glass and does not restrict itself to traditional „bulb packaging“.
Step 1: Carving the Plaster / Positive Moulded Part
- The shape of the glass body to be blown must first be carved out of plaster. To do this, pour out a block of plaster in the desired size and mould it until the mould is finished.
- It is important to brush them afterwards with shellac. This is done in order to prevent the plaster from sticking together when building the mould, where new plaster is applied.
