Shaped by air is the story of the only blown glass art studio in Cuba. Eduardo, a self-taught artist, creates unique and handmade pieces every day, some are utilitarian, others are pure works of art. He is always accompanied by two young students: his son and a friend ensuring the succession of know-how and the persistence of art, today in danger. In this small studio in Lawton, a popular neighborhood in Havana, Eduardo bakes, blows and shapes all the pieces with instruments and resources made by himself. The furnace where the glass is forged, the rod with which it is blown, and the tools in which it rests, still boiling red hot, have all been crafted by the same hands that delicately shape hot glass.
Moldeado por el aire es la historia del único estudio de arte de vidrio soplado en Cuba. Eduardo, artista autodidacta, crea cada día piezas únicas y hechas a mano, algunas son utilitarias, otras son puras obras de arte. Siempre lo acompañan dos jóvenes estudiantes: su hijo y un amigo asegurando la sucesión del saber hacer y la persistencia del arte, hoy en peligro. En este pequeño estudio de Lawton, un popular barrio habanero, Eduardo hornea, sopla y da forma a todas las piezas con instrumentos y recursos elaborados por él mismo. El horno donde se forja el vidrio, la varilla con la que lo sopla y las herramientas en las que este descansa, aún hirviendo al rojo vivo, han sido elaborados por las mismas manos que dan forma delicadamente al vidrio caliente.
