Vessel, HY.06, from GLASS series, 2015
Narrowing as it grows upwards from a wide base, this vessel is furrowed with sturdy, organic curves, resembling the trunk of a cypress tree. The piece is from Oxman’s 3D-printed GLASS series. Each piece in the series is built up from tubes of molten glass, layer by layer, yielding optically transparent structures. The tubular forms have the potential to contain and transmit media. This new technique has enormous potential for creating vessels and products as well as architectural components and building facades. The technique was unveiled by Oxman and her Mediated Matter group in September, 2015.
