This project is a set of dishes made of utility glass. They have “stitchings” which are properly adapted to their size and accentuate their shape. The graphite‑covered fabric is used in industry. The material is quite stiff and difficult to sew, but when it is put in the special wooden form or touches the glass, it becomes very flexible, and shows all the folds and creases. The author made her work in a factory, where she used wooden moulds to put in the made‑to‑measure material with a stitching. An alternative way is burning the dishes in an oven. In such case, the creative process is different, and the textured side is inside the vessel.
