After spending time working at a fine arts glass studio, I decided to attempt an integration of the two materials. Working with extra thick pyrex tubing, I coldworked a series of perforated holes into the glass, installed rudimentary plumbing, and installed a custom soft sealant barrier. A speaker was affixed to one end, so that the device not only showed off the beauty of glass and fire together, but also the fluid dynamics visualized with a rubens' tube.
