Scissors’ Sisters

Scissors’ Sisters is a series of three pitchers; 25cl, 50cl, and 100cl in molded glass. Born from a challenge given during a visit to the CIAV (International Center for Glass Art), Scissors’ Sisters takes a close look at traditional blow molding, and highlights one step in particular. By interrupting the process and introducing an unusual cut at the edge of the glass, a spout is generated. The liquid is magnified as it is being poured, leaving behind a single drop that traces the length of the pitcher. Time stops for just a moment, and we can picture around us the dimmed lighting and stained wooden tabletops of a traditional pub. Then the drop falls, and we can but admire this pitcher’s unique identity.
