Liquid Fusion Design Workshop
Architect, designer and educator Paul Haigh returns to Boisbuchet to lead a glass design exploration workshop focusing on the ephemeral and sublime qualities of glass as a rich palette for innovation and intervention. Emphasis will be placed on the idea of ‘...glass as a liquid’ in exploring a material that can transform process into poetry...
Working with expert glassmakers from The Corning Museum of Glass, participants develop conceptually driven glass concepts at multiple scales from fashion to furniture, from artifact to architecture. Each new design will be fabricated through multiple prototypes utilizing the processes offered, including pipe blowing, fusing, hand pressing and cast glass forming. The participants will examine glass making as an art form that offers a multitude of methods appropriate for today’s design tasks.
The ‘Liquid Fusion’ workshop at Boisbuchet has been developed in partnership with the technical expertise, resources and cooperation of the GlassLab design program of The Corning Museum of Glass USA.
Early booking is recommended, as the number of participants will be limited.
The workshop takes place at Domaine de Boisbuchet, a design retreat center in southwestern France. Registration is required.
