Rita Botelho
DIY Mould, 2012
Hand-blown glass (moulded with steel rods)
Series of 12 plus 3 Artist's Proofs
As Rita Botelho says, "DIY Mould is a game where steel sticks of different heights are displayed in different positions, allowing the creation of multiple shapes with a single mould. It challenges the conventional static moulds that can't be modified and encourages a creative input during the glassblowing process. Challenging the conventional design of the tools that have always been used in glassblowing workshops, the team worked with the glassblower and the possibilities of creating so many different shapes with a single mould and the unpredictability of the final results were the most pleasing aspects of the whole experience".
