Fusion Set, a Carafe and Cup, are the result of an on-going investigation of blowing glass into fired ceramic bodies. Causing the two to remain fused, effectively representing the merging of two crafts.
The requirement to produce said objects being the development of a multi step process. Beginning with the modelling and casting of the ceramic shape. After firing this, a heat proof mold is fabricated in which the ceramic sits, while leaving room for the glass to be blown through the piece and into the rest of the mold. It is then held tightly shut while the glass is blown evenly within. Effectively merging the two materials.
