//Description

“Sugar is a basic cooking product, It is a solid material, which can be transformed into a liquid and back to a different solid again. The transformation of this eatable product opens possibilities for experimenting ephemeral shapes and designs.

From the chemical reaction of sugar, water and glucose warmed up together to 160 degrees celcius, the mix offers similar qualities to glass (transparency, fragility, plasticity…)

Looking at the glass industry, Amelia decided to put in parallel the technique of glass blowing and sugar casting to create a new food design project: sugar glasses.

She imagined a sugar manufacture showing the process of transformation from the original state of the material to the final designed glass.

The sugar glass melts in contact with water therefore the liquid poured inside gets flavoured too and the glass becomes a drink.

Material, shape, color and flavour are confronted, the association of their qualities result in a new experience of drinking.” (Desnoyers, 2013)
