Lapi Boli Project
Lapi Boli was founded by Krista Israel in september 2017 during a residency at JAEA Ceramic Art Centre, China.
It is the technique for throwing pâte de verre on the wheel.
Research to develop the technique will be conducted with the assistance of Ayako Tani (UK/JP) - glassartist/researcher, Hans de Kruyk (NL) - glasstechnologist (retired) of the Royal Leerdam Glassfactory and Hao Ran Zhu (CHN) - ceramic artist.
Lapi is the Chinese word for throwing, Boli is glass.
The project is selected for publication in 'New Glass Review 39' by Corning Museum of Glass - USA, published in may 2018.
