WAIT and SEE – MILANO
UNCAGED EXPECTATIONS
OUT OF THE CAGE SERIES
by Gala Fernández Montero

Out of the cage is an experimental glass-blowing project. The liquid glass is blown into various shaped and sized existinng molds as  birdcages for this process. The objects are a result of the interaction of the hot fluid glass with these moulds: the final pieces carrying the marks and history of both their former existences. The glass works subtly capture this essence of limitation, protection and custody.

The first of the series (Mexican series produced by Nouvel Studio) of this collection of glass blown pieces was presented during Abierto Mexicano de Diseño festival in 2013.
Afterwards it was showcased by Marion Friedmann Gallery at London Design Festival in 2014 and at MIART in  2015.

In 2016 the Spanish series produced at La Real Fábrica de Cristales de La Granja and co-edited by Colindante Ediciones and Piopio Editions was presented at the show Buccaneer’s Booty by Bergman Rd. Gallery in Marbella curated by Maria Cristina Didero, and afterwards in Madrid at Videgreniers during the Amicitia est Beatitudo event.
Es un proyecto experimental de diseño, piezas únicas de vidrio soplado en moldes existentes
(jaulas, cestas, moldes, etc) de variados materiales.
Los resultados son fruto de la interacción del vidrio y el molde que en algunos casos se fusiona
con el material fluido cristalizado y en otras desaparece regalando a la pieza final la marca
de su existencia pasada.
La colección se presentó en la primera edición del Abierto Mexicano de Diseño 2013 y posteriormente
viajó a Londres de la mano de Marion Friedmann Gallery donde se expuso durante el London Design
Festival 2014 y 2015.
