Studio Dokola – Mezza Forma - Pouring Jug in Smoke 750mls
These new tableware designs are a continuation of the process created in the series Liquid Stone. They take an experimental and nuanced approach to designing materials that are complementary to the glassblowing process. In doing so attention is focused on conceptualising finished forms in glass through long interactions with a different material. Mezza Forma meaning half form or half mould delineates this bridging of two material worlds but also references naive mould-making in the face of refined industrial craft heritage.
Reaching back to find provocative period styles, we recycle visual ideas of the past into tableware for new markets. Embracing the dynamic meaning of the word DOKOLA as a concept for objects - Dokola (Doh – kol – ah) can be simplified to mean around & around. Like turning a glassblowing pipe, recycling glass, or the resurgence of a past trend today. We consider this nutshell definition when thinking about designing, process, cyclic values, and trends.
