Fusion -The Experiment on the Combination Copper and Glass
This is a collaborative project with Italian designer ANNA GILI of searching of possibility of extensive use and application of sustainable materials. We set the traditional intangible cultural heritage ‘copper melting technology’ as the clue to study the characteristics and handicraft. We tried chemical color experiment, copper-melting experiment, direct mixture experiment of copper, ceramics and glass. Through many failed experiment, we finally managed to mix chemically and physically in special condition between copper melting technology and glass blowing technology of sustainable materials.
