PROGRAMME 11TH JUNE

10.30AM ARTIST TALK – Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje
Together Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje established Transglass, a product range launched in 1997, recycled, ethical and elegant. In their separate practices, reuse and recycling has also had a strong presence. Emma and Tord will talk about how these ideas changed and developed, how place, local materials and skills are important to sustainability, also giving examples of ceramic, furniture and textile projects.

11.15AM ARTIST TALK – Maria Sparre-Petersen
In this presentation issues regarding sustainable innovation in glass craft and design will be addressed. This subject matter has been the focus of Maria Sparre-Petersen’s research during a four year Ph.D. project at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Design. The project has been completed to contribute to sustainable development while considering practitioners’ demands for aesthetic autonomy in their creative practices, as well as to produce knowledge that can accommodate a closer link between the theoretical and practical aspects of sustainable development within glass craft and design. The central issues in the research are if and how introduction of sustainable principles in creative processes may influence expansion of aesthetic spaces of opportunity, and how glass craft and design may contribute to sustainable development.

12.30PM PERFORMANCE – Kärlis Bogustovs
A performance involving glass stacking and skateboarding.
The performance will take place in front of the museum.

2.00PM ARTIST TALK – Carl Bens
Carl Bens will give a talk about his research of possibilities, making kiln casting more ecologically and economically evicent. The result is a modular system in which he compares different types of glass with a specific mould building for kiln casting based on recycling materials. He will focus on the at Young Glass 2017 exhibited sculpture of a “sheepskin”, which combines this research with the use of recycled glass as a sculptural casting material and show the possibilities for larger scale kiln casts.

2.45PM INTRODUCTION to The Glass Heap Challenge – Matt Durran
The Glass Heap Challenge concept was initiated by British artist, Matt Durran. The event has been held on a number of occasions in different contexts and the Ebeltoft Glass Heap Challenge is the 11th event in the series.  Matt Durran will give an introduction to the event and present the overall ideas behind the concept, which focuses on methods and end results possible when working with waste glass material.
