Post Luxury Post Luxury by Franklin St Studio is a project focusing on glass blowing with oyster shells : "Working with the Vancouver glassblower Jaan Andres, Post Luxury seeks to reframe the oyster shell as a high-value material through sculptural “luxury” objects that are formed in blown glass on site in Fanny Bay, Canada, a small shellfish farming community that is supported and defined by the renowned Fanny Bay Oyster.[...]crystallization as a binding mechanism, and is made from two constituents only; oyster shell fragments and a mineral solute." Key words : On site production - Waste by-product - Community identity
