The Journey from Wax to Art Object.

Each piece of cast glass starts from a wax origional. The clean wax original is double cast in heat resistant plaster for the final cast in glass. Next the wax is steamed out of the plaster mould which is then placed in the kiln. Glass is placed in a flower pot positioned so that as it melts it will flow into the mould. Over these days the glass melts, fills the mould, and cools slowly to make the object. Finally the mould is carefully broken away to reveal the artwork. 'Each piece is handled multiple times and the result is a one of a kind work of art.' - Thomas Barter
