Resources

73 results from blowing liquid glass into a foldedand highly heat-resistant ceramic fabric vessel.

The resulting shape has a formal and textural expression intuitively associated with fabric, which becomes permanent and rigid as it cools. A flat LED is positioned to fill the resulting volume with diffuse light, accentuating the volumetric perception of the piece.

By virtue of the loosely controlled manufacturing process, each 73 is completely unique in proportion, size, and shape. 73s are intended to nestle together in groups, creating complex compositions that resemble clouds.
