StatementIn the Nuremberg workshop, vessel forms for everyday use are created at the glass melting furnace. Characteristic for the design language developed by Cornelius Réer are function, subtle coloring, and determined shaping. This results in unique pieces and small series that are self-explanatory. Important to him are the development of haptic details, such as mouth rim and handle.
The extreme increase in the price of energy is also answered by new design techniques. The works presented here are blown into a steel mold. The effect of this is that a wavy structure forms on the surface of the glass body due to the cold shock. With this technique, the axial symmetry, which is obligatory for wooden molds, can be abandoned. Later, the glass is sawn and ground to the desired height in the cold state.
