fibres

Fiberglass is commonly found in fire blankets, to effectively put out fire due to its high melting point. This project is a material research, exploring the possibilities to extract pure glass from used fire blankets.

Treating the kevlar material under heat, it transforms to a textile to a hard and brittle material.

Treating the fiberglass blanket under intense heat, allows other fibers to burn off, leaving glass behind, in a beautiful woven structure.

Exploring different techniques to hold the glass fibers together, including sewing. 

When our pet passes away, can we make them a little coffin by wrapp them up in fire blankets before cremating them under high temperature? The glass melts over their body, leaving their skeleton behind imprinted between the glass.
