ONCE UPON A TIME
About the Object:
The collection of glass vases is made of four pieces in different sizes, created from the record of the fables Guto's grandmother told him when He was a child, captured in digital audio files, which were used as reference for the digital modeling of the vases. The result of the process is the core of the forms which, through the artisanal glassblowing technique, materialize childhood memories. The use of discarded glass shards contribute to the sense of a life cycle.
These four glass vases reflect Estudio Guto Requenas interest in the design process and projects inspired by affective memory and the rich Brazilian culture and recent history, as well as the reevaluation of artisanal heritage. These objects represent the investigation of creative design processes which benefit from the possibilities offered by new digital technologies.
