Method of Making Cast Glass
The Original Fired Clay sculpture is covered in a rubber mold material, then a 2 piece plaster cast is formed around it. The original fired clay is removed & wax is poured in; when set, the wax is taken out.

Then a second 2 piece cast is made; the wax melted out (Lost Wax Method of casting)
Then glass is put into the new cast (by weight) & it is fired over 12 hours in a kiln - then annealed, 4- 6 weeks (cooled slowly) over 4 - 6 weeks, depending on the thickness of the Glass.
All glass sculptures weigh 20 kilos.

Finishes: Glass & Bronze
Opaque Glass: The cast glass is cleaned,then sandblasted.
Transparent & Silky Smooth: Sand blasted then polished in a acid bath.
Transparent with sculpture marks: Polished in a Acid bath
Bronze: Cast by lost wax method (as above) then Bronze resin is poured into cast then fired.
All three sculptures: Size: H. 403 mm W. 250 mm
