What more could you want other than to play with fused glass on a cold day?
The piece is made from 2 square sheets, offset, and with confetti glass sandwiched between them.
I first fired it on a regular fusing programme to make the flat design.
For the slumping stage I made a simple mould from vermiculite sheet, with a hole in it, to allow the glass to fall.
Some of the bubbles are a little larger than I would ideally like, but it is an interesting design that I will play with again.
What next? Well watch this space, as, inspired by our holiday in South Africa and the principle of ‘leave only footsteps’, I am currently having a go with casting glass.
I have been researching mould making and have all necessary bits and pieces. All I need now is time.
