Award 2019

Anna Holzapfel



What happens when hot glass meets textile cladding? Flexible containers produced in an improvised fashion with various thermal resistance levels are blown with glass. Flame proof, fire resistant and non-flammable textiles, knitted and yarn, are used. Among the materials tested are copper wire, carbon, aramid, basalt and glass fibres. But also conventional easily flammable materials, such as jute package string, are exposed to the hot glass. The materials affect the glass surface in unexpected ways, creating outlandish surface structures and colour nuances. Rags of fabric adhere like skin to the glass or are transferred and oxidised into the glass. The process was documented and evaluated on a chart.
