The transaction project

The transaction project

Apprenticeship, reputation, status and skill, personal recommendation; The Transaction Project takes these aspects of craft as the basis for a network of production. The project begins with a transaction: the design and manufacture of a ceramic element which is then offered to a glassblower who produces a number of objects in response drawing on their own form language. They are asked to recommend two glassblowers. These in turn, will recommend two more. Together the collection of pieces will form a travelling exhibition that showcases both the glassblowers technique and a new method of digital design and pattern creation.
