By combining a generative idea and a traditional fabrication process, every piece made is exclusive. Only when the 128 3d-printed blocks that create the mold are put back together, a generative process happens: the order of the blocks is never the same, thus the vases are always a little different in their outside structure - therefore unique. Once blown, the mold opens like a puzzle. This vase is being produced with an infinite combinatory production process Tombola has been developped in collaboration with multiple craftsmen to allow experiments and optimiziations along the way.
