Manza Glassware

Simplicit Design designed and fabricated a limited run of custom glassware, which experimented with perceptual constancy. Glassware tends to be symmetrically round, but Simplicit Design was inspired to create glassware that was not round and had a different perceived shape depending upon the angle using elements of perceptual constancy. Manza glassware is wide and round from the front view, but appears more oblong and elongated from a side view. Simplicit Design 3D modeled the wood mold for the glassware, then Blockhead Molds fabricated the mold, and Hot Sand Glass Blowing Studio used the mold to blow the glassware.
