For most people, the process of glassblowing is a mystery.
To show off the properties that make the material so fun and interesting from our perspective, we wanted to document the entire process of making one object. Glassblowing has so many actions that need to work together with precise timing, all while trying to keep the material from dripping on the floor, that you almost always need to blow as a team. We would like to thank our friend and glassblower Alex Abajian from Glow Glass Studio in Oakland, CA who helped us blow these Lucky Break bowls. You'll be seeing the process both from Alex's perspective and from mine.
We applied the same color process from our Lucky Break drinking glasses to make a pasta bowl and a serving bowl which we just finished.

For our latest project, the Lucky Break drinking glass, we’ve been exploring chance and asking the question, “can we use chance as a tool in the design process?”
At some point during our development of the Saturn Rocks Glass, we realized that we didn't fully understand the why the original Saturn Wine Glasses work as well as they do. For the longest time, we thought it was just the ledge that kept our glass from spilling, but it turns out it is SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. Somewhere around version 5 of the our new rocks glass, we had to fully analyze the physics of our wine glasses, and here's what we found.
