dc.description.abstractFinnish glass industry is going through turbulence with factories closing down and schools being uncertain of their future. Now is the time for collaboration. Our thesis started with filming in the village of Nuutajärvi for 12 days over the period of 3 months capturing over 50 hours of film. After that we engaged glass not just as designers but also as facilitators; using methods based on chance operations, score and our own intuition we discovered different ways of using moulds and invented games to push the students to blow outside their glass bubble. We explored, experimented and captured the process. This resulted in pieces of glass with unique processes behind them showing the marks of the moulds, makers and mistakes. The collaborative and participatory approach brought us closer to the people working within the industry. We got new friends, new ideas and new opportunities.en
