Final Project Proposal
For my final project I decided to use the concept of iteration to create a sequence of varied interactions between apples and glass. I wish to experiment as much as possible and push myself to discover the most creative and interesting ways apples and glass can be combined. I want to test how each can affect the other based on the different methods I use. Most of the apples I plan to carve or peel so that they will dry out and remain preserved and I will take the apples in various drying stages and manipulate them with glass or vice versa. Some methods I want to experiment with are sealing a peeled apple in a blown form, dipping an apple in molten glass, piercing an apple with rods of glass and see what happens as the apple dries, drawing a pattern on an apple with hot glass to burn it, hollowing out an apple and pouring molten glass inside, swirling hot glass cane around an apple, make a glass/apple chain or connection using boro and flame working. My goal is to create as many variations of glass/apple interactions and try to find the most creative ways they can interact.
