To create these vessels, Angela Thwaites digitally models and 3-D prints their forms before making molds and casting them in glass. That is to say, the design is 3-D printed but, despite appearances, the final object isn’t. That makes this a fascinating, transitional work that exists between the technical limits of a new(ish) fabrication technology and its hold on our imagination.
