Hello, so this is going to be a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around some projects. Right now I'm exploring the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Hope you enjoy 

Contacting Manufacturers

With a clear idea of the design direction, I would like to pursue, I had quickly contacted a couple of Glass manufacture who specialise in precise and bespoke glass manufacturer, these being, Sunderland glass centre and techglass. 

With the intention to use opal glass, my lecturer had pre-warned me how opal glass for one can be very hard to come by and secondly can be over twice as expensive as traditional glass. So with that in mind i wanted to discover if this design direction was actually feasible considering I would want to make three bespoke diffuses, each with their own character.

After a few emails and phone calls, it was clear that this design direction wouldn't be feasible.
