Learning in Glass is the result of a six-month experiment between seven international creatives and Salviati, a Venetian manufacture of blown glass.
The creatives include design collective AUT; Tommaso Cavallin, a private researcher based at the University of Architecture and Design of Venice; and London-based product designer Anna Perugini.
The research project, known by those involved as Breaking The Mould, began with factory workers teaching basic skills to the creatives who then began to play with different moulds.
Materials including ceramic wool, ceramic ribbon, ceramic tissue and carbon fibre were all used to shape and make impressions on the glass, which was set in either wooden or metal outer moulds.
Other than the moulds, the same furnace process, soda lime glass material, and craftsmen were used as with the Salviati commercial collection.
Now the Aram Gallery has invited BTM to exhibit its research alongside production pieces by Salviati.
Learning in Glass takes is The Aram Gallery, 110 Drury Lane, London WC2B, from 22 February-6 April
