This project was solely based around the usage of mold blowing. My goal was to create several different types of potions and elixir bottles with the construction of wood molds. I ended up creating around seven different wood molds to blow glass into and ended up with a good batch of vessels. We then had to create a display for our concept. My concept was an idea to have a shelf of potions and elixirs to portray the ideologies of alchemy and apothecary. I ended up creating a laser engraved box with a very ornate and sacred looking design. Inside the box were my vessels as well as several other unique objects such as bones, scrolls, books, stones, and a center piece of a clear orb on a icosehedron form.
