Nicola Moretti is a skilled and histrionic glass master who has the innate spirit of curiosity. His specialities are custom productions and the use of murrine, but above all what strives in his propensity to experiment new solutions that dialogue with traditional glass processing techniques.
The experimental undertaking for this class is based on the study of two traditional techniques: glass blowing and melting on refactory plaster moulds. The class will look at the experimentation that concerns the combination on computational design, 3D printing and fused glass mould casting using murrine. Nicola will be joined by Damiano Frison from Del_FabLab, University of Venice, a project that investigates the possibilities between new technologies and the millenary tradition of glass craftsmanship on the island of Murano.
