Over the past several years, the end of my 6 hours of cup making would conclude with the act of taking and posting an image of all the remnants of the cup making process down beneath my bench on social media (#endofslotsurvey). Although considered hot shop refuse, I see what’s down below as an exquisite arrangement of glass trimmings, cut offs, mishaps, and other glass process residue. Survey is a documentation-driven project that acknowledges all the byproduct responsible for bringing a cup to life; residue of repetition and discipline, but also an arrangement based on chance placement.
The project is ongoing and the piece grows every year.
