What's the big idea?
Detroit Glass House is on a mission to update the story of the traditional glass blowing studio. Replacing conventional settings with a collaborative mobile design studio and educational facility. Detroit Glass House’s goal is to bring transparency and accessibility to a previously elite and challenging medium by;
a. collaborating with local designers, artist, entrepreneurs & inventors to develop high-end glass design in a mulch-disciplinary arena.
b. offering classes & demonstrations that focus on sculptural & modern glass processes
Describe the nearest player in your field.
Metro Detroit has a handful of small private production glass studios some of which offer traditional glass classes. While there are no true mobile glass blowing facilities in Metro Detroit, a local studio does set up an off site facility during renaissance festivals and craft fairs.
How are you different from that player?
- collaborations & demonstrations
- taking 18 years of training and making it accessible to an idea
- contemporary and interdisciplinary approach to a glass production studio
- can turn any cocktail napkin drawing into fruition
- is mobile
- can turn off at will, saves $
How's the world different with your idea in it?
By taking historical craft and blending it with modern design & production processes we hope to find new value for craftsmanship in the 21st century. By sharing it with others we hope it provides transparency and accessibility to an otherwise inaccessible medium, glass.
Why are you the one to run with this idea?
Detroit Glass House consists of motivated & experienced individuals holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a combine 18 years experience. We are looking to explore the un-tapped potential of a medium through collaborations, accessibility & public demonstrations.
