28 is an exploration of fabrication process which is part of Bocci's quest for specificity in manufacturing. Instead of designing form, here the intent was to design a system that produces form. 28's result form a method that has loose parameters built into it, which produces a different shape in every iteration of the fabrication procedure. Individual 28 pendants result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby air is intermittently introduced into and then removed from a glass matrix which is intermittently heated and then rapidly cooled. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which is made of opaque milk glass and houses a low voltage lamp.
