21 countries in 24 months: From Denmark to the USA and all the way to China? A journey around the entire globe. In August 2012 we, two newly trained glass makers, will set off on a two year long adventure to the large glass factories and small studios around the world. We will travel through 21 countries, from Denmark to the USA and all the way to China, to gain insight and learn specialized techniques from local glass makers.

Our idea was to replicate the “Walz“, only on a global scale. Our Name “Weiberwalz” is derived from two German words “Weiber” and “Walz”. The former is a bavarian slang for women and the later a term used to describe the journey artisans go on after they have completed their training. This is not customary in glass making and especially not for women. Especially in the age old trade of glass making production secrets are guarded very safely and woman were not allowed anywhere near a glass furnace. It is our goal to change this!

Many well-known Glass making maestros have already given us the thumbs up and are anxiously awaiting our arrival and the weeks we will work together. Subsequently we will exhibit all the art work created during the “Walz” across Germany. We will also document our travels in a catalogue and keep blogging about our current experiences.
