Are there any irregularities in mass production?
Using the archetypal green bottle as a basic, Klaas Kuiken explored how a mass product can be individualized.When he analyzed the mass produced glass bottles, he found out that there were differences in the thickness of the glass. To emphasize those differences, he designed a special technique, including a self-developed glass oven, to blow (up) existing bottles, by doing this the bottle bulges more in areas where the glass is thin and less where it is thicker. Playing with heat and pressure controls –and not without a fair share of explosions and cracked bottles- Klaas Kuiken perfected the technique to create a family of individual mass green bottles.
