The ‚0I Table‘ is based on an in-depth investigation of the manual process of creating mouth blown sheet glass. In order to produce such a sheet a large cylinder is created, which is then cut and ironed down to become a flat piece of glass.
The ‚Improvisations‘ collection translates and transcribes an impulsive performance that happens between the maker and the material.
Of Movement and Material addresses the way in which the human body and an amorphous substance like glass influence each other, the elements created in a dance between maker and material.
Starting out from ancestral research, Philipp Weber deconstructed the industrial process of making coke from fossil coal. In From Below he invented a machine that fires objects from a material that usually only serves as a raw material to produce iron.
How can music influence glassblowing and what does it sound like when a musician is asked to step into a dialogue with a glassblower?
‘A Strange Symphony On Colours’ explores the technical innovation of a new glassblowing tool, which was developed in the preceding project A Strange Symphony.
In this project Philipp Weber altered the main tool of the glassblower, his blowing pipe. ‘A Strange Symphony’ shows a different and new approach towards glassmaking.
