GLASS

Sand Cast Glass

My Process 

I use handmade wooden or hard plaster moulds which I push into red sand which leaves an impression in the sand.

Inside the impression I place handmade copper pieces and crushed coloured glass.

Ladles of hot molten glass are then taken from a glass furnace and poured into the sand mould.  

The finished glass sculpture is then placed into a 

kiln for 48 hours or more depending on its size to cool down slowly.

 

Sand cast glass is unpredictable and exciting you can never say how a finished piece will look no one piece is ever the same.
