Dewar Glassware

The Flask Vase, Flask Light and Dewar Light are the outcomes from a continuing investigation into the beauty, form and manufacturing techniques found in scientific glassware. As a direct result of the production processes used in its creation, Laboratory glassware has a very specific formal language. All vessels and instruments start as glass tubes that are reshaped on lathes under extreme heat. Rubber parts are often used to connect the various instruments or to seal the vessels. Acting as a malleable and gentle buffer for the glass, the material combination is both functional and aesthetical beautiful. This contrast of materials and their aesthetic formed the starting point for this investigation.

The project is named after James Dewar who was in search of the absolute zero temperature point and invented the Dewar flask or isolating container. These containers (also known as Thermos flasks) use two walls of glass which sandwich a thin layer of silver to reflect the heat.
