Production Process

For the production process, molds prepared from 3-D printed products. Mold material is plaster due to functionality for blow molding. For the containers, glass blowers used the technique of blow molding. For the lids, I prepared sandcasting moldings from 3-D printed products. After that, metal pressed used to give shape of bottom part of lids. The metal holes in metal pressing tool made on purpose to help for orientation while sand casting process.
