Cast Glass Art Objects
This teambuilding programme is unique in Switzerland
Our specialist for glass art is a true genius in his field and gets commissions from around the world. With his open-minded, friendly and creative way he is open to all ideas.
In his large, airy and light workshop your guests get a first insight into the work of a glass blower and admire various objects of art. After a brief introduction to the technical side and a short presentation showing an example, the guests start designing their own piece of glass art.
The Planning Phase
The aim is to form a ‘glass picture’ made from several individual parts (depending on the number of participants). In a team effort the look and design of the picture is established.
After the decision making the group is split into small teams to work on the piece. As each team is working both for themselves but also on the big picture, a good information flow is essential.
Moulds and templates are manufactured; individually by hand or with the tools available the negative casts are impressed into the foundry sand. Other glass parts as well as other materials can be used during this process according to the designers’ fancy. The glass artist pours the molten glass into the moulds. Later the participants demould the pieces and take them to the annealing kiln.
This technique is known as sand casting. A negative cast made from sand (sticky specialty sand) is filled with molten glass, later demoulded and cooled down very slowly.
A Luxury Object as a Memento
After the single parts have cooled down the glass artist assembles them according to the participants’ instructions. The completed glass picture can be picked up or posted to the company. In your company this glass object will undoubtedly become an eye-catcher! When it catches the light it will turn into a real treasure. With their different forms and colours each piece has its own shine.
Team evaluation and coaching
Engaging a professional coach to observe your team at work will ensure that they, and the company, get the most from the whole experience. He or she will be on hand throughout the day to analyse performance, highlight achievements, address problems and help the team to utilise the lessons learnt back in the working environment.
