ZAP Opaque Black & White Platter
Photographer: photographer Simon Bruntnell
Details: 50 cm x 50 cm x 8 cm
Zap platters are produced using cutting edge manufacturing technologies, it has taken over five hours of cutting time on a waterjet cutter to cut the individual zigzags needed to create this design, which I cut from sheets of opaque White and opaque Black glass.
Once both sheets of glass are cut, they are cleaned by hand and are laid onto a ceramic kiln shelf into the design, then the Zigzags shapes pieces are fused together at tenperatures around 800 Degree Celsius.
Once fused together the fused tile is cut and then cold worked by hand this is where the edge of the glass tile is polished to create a soft edge, then the tile is place into the kiln again over a ceramic slumping mould and fired again at a lower temperature around 650 Degree Celsius to form the piece. At this temperature it is just hot enough to soften the glass and gravity helps bend it into its funtional form following the shape of the mould.

Get out while you can
Photographer: Dominic Fonde
Details: Short story written by Dominic Fonde and drill engraved on a mass produced wine glass.
In the half-light of the restaurant she sipped her wine and thought, “I am having so much fun”.
They had met via a dating website and despite her trepidation she had to admit that it was all going fine. He was charming, polite, and attentive and although a few years older than the picture he’d posted online, definitely fell into the ranks of the handsome.
He excused himself and headed towards the men’s room. She beckoned the waiter and had their wine glasses refilled.
“Are you ready to order?” he asked mechanically. She had not even looked at the menu yet. This was probably a good moment to get some ideas, especially as she had never visited this place before.
“Any recommendations?” she asked playfully.
“Get out while you can” the waiter told her “You’re his third date this week”.
