In January 2012 I went to Nový Bor, along with 20 other glassblowers and designers to the second workshop of the project Glass is tomorrow, the theme was silvered glass.
I was lucky enough to work with the Verreum Glassmakers, Matteo Gonet (CH) and Rea Moisio (FI).
We worked on the pieces Auspuff, vase & containers as well as on the silvered light study

Born in June 2011, with the support of the European Union program called «Culture» (2007-2013), the project Glass is Tomorrow is becoming a European network that aims to establish a smoother exchange of knowledge and skills between glass and design professionals.
Glass is Tomorrow seeks to highlight and optimize the existing synergies between tandems composed of European glass makers and designers across 60 creations thought and designed to develop new types of everyday objects.
