The Other Half Bowl is a collection of glass bowls in combination with concrete. The glass bowls are obtained by cutting the wine container (damigiana) in order to make Sequence lamps. The Other Half Bowl comes in different hight and shapes, each the result of cutting the damigianas in different levels. They are covered with a layer of concrete. During our research, we have developed a composition of concrete and other substances which gives us the possibility to apply the material directly on the glass. Without using glue or any of its derivatives, it attaches to the glass once completely dry.
We aimed to demonstrate the variety of a concrete surface by leaving them rough and unpolished. The Other Half Bowl is a combination 2 two different surfaces: Glass as a delicate, smooth and light surface in combination with rough, rustic and heavy feeling of concrete. By using this combination, we have created a visual contrast.
