New technique jazzes up ancient art of glassblowing
Designer Philipp Weber has mixed music with art using a trumpet as inspiration for his glassblowing instrument

Designer Philipp Weber has taken inspiration from the music world and broken more than 2,000 years' of tradition in glassblowing. 

Last week Designboom featured Weber's Strange Symphony, where glassblowing meets performance art. 

Weber has given this ancient practice a musical twist and refashioned the traditional blowpipe into a trumpet hybrid. Think improvised jazz, with a lovely set of vases at the end. 

Strange Symphony is currently being showcased at DMY berlin 2013.
