Car Light arose from her first workshop, ‘Glass is tomorrow’, which took place in Boda (Sweden) in July 2013. ‘Glass is tomorrow’ is a European research programme on glass launched by the Belgian body Pro Materia in partnership with the Swedish manufacturer The Glass Factory, this workshop explored the theme of Mixed Media (a method of artistic expression which makes free use of combinations of media, materials and techniques, with the emphasis on salvage or the reuse of objects). It was thus that car headlights were selected by Nathalie Dewez as the source of inspiration and the basis of experimental work with glass blowers. Could the ribbed, etched glass of car headlights (to diminish glare and facilitate diffusion) be artistically reworked and used to make an indoor light? By mouth-blowing the glass in a cylindrical mould lined with a grille, Nathalie Dewez obtained dome shapes on which the desired motif was marked in relief. Each glass light thus produced is a unique piece which projects the shape of its halo of light onto the surface on which it sits and on the surrounding walls.
