Item details

How simple mass-produced bottles of green glass can become unique objects? Klaas Kuiken was intrigued by the question whether mass-produced items can show some kind of irregularities. It appeared to be the case with these bottles and Klaas turned their 'flaws' into something beautiful, re-forming them by using his own technique of glass-blowing.

Klaas Kuiken's products and designs arise from a fascination with the creative process and its influence on the final result. Even though Klaas is clearly a product designer, when busy in his workshop he's more like a skilled craftsman and curious inventor. It will come of no surprise that the Discovery Channel TV show 'How it's made' is one of Klaas' biggest sources of inspiration. This program sparked a fascination for mass production and the question 'what is the influence of mass production in relation to the identity of products?' became a central theme in his work.
