An three step group exercise in understanding the reciprocal influence between our personal interactions, the materials we make with with, and the spaces we move within.

Step i

Each participant gathers glass from the furnace then drizzles, wraps, and trails their material over several stationary kiln bricks creating the foundation of the threadbare sculpture.

step ii

One individual gathers glass and each participant uses a hot punty to pull glass from the single source, continuing to build the material.

step iii

One person gathers glass and the single punty is passed from participant to participant until the glass cools and more glass is gathered.

The resulting artifact is a reflection of the different facets of individual effort and collaborative potential.
