Recycling,  melting, blowing, slowing:

Workshop for Studio Tom Emerson seminar week at ETH, Zurich

Architecture students experienced hot glass for the first time. They were challenged to create piece that played with light and shadow. Working outdoors the students responded to their environment and used the garden to create moulds for their forms. They were able to be very hands on and assist with the production of their designs.

Glass Light:

Workshop for ECAL University, Lausanne

Design students at ECAL took part in an experimental mould making workshop. The aim of the workshop was to create a glass light. Students were introduced to the idea of mould making, spent time creating their moulds and then Niesenglass visited with the mobile furnace to realise their prototypes.
