Domaine de Boisbuchet
The Corning Museum of Glass provided two workshops at the design retreat center, Domaine de Boisbuchet, located in Lessac, France. The first was Liquid Fusion, led by architect, designer and educator Paul Haigh. This glass design exploration workshop focusing on the ephemeral and sublime qualities of glass as a rich palette for innovation and intervention. Emphasis was placed on the idea of ‘...glass as a liquid’ in exploring an ancient material that can transform process into poetry... The second was a class using a unique type of wood-fired kiln to simultaneously fire ceramics and melt glass for glassblowing.
