Burnout hinges on a formal exploration of the effects of entropy. Casting series of pieces from a single plywood mold, each hand-blown piece registers the unique burn pattern of the mold by the molten glass. Functioning a bit like a game of chance, in these works the designers set the “rules” of the piece and lets convection determine the evolution of the final shapes. The experimental and highly delicate process by which the pieces are made means each set is unique both in form and number of works in each series. The shape of each piece captures the ambient conditions present at the moment of casting and means that no piece can ever be exactly replicated.
